Is it safe to remove a live primer from a shell during disassembly? If so how?
Very big thank you for adding that point!The above are all talking about removing live 209 primers, which should be perfectly safe. Knocking out live rifle or pistol primers may have a different answer because in those cases the de-primer is actually connecting with the insides of the primer. On a 209 primer your deprimer should not be going through the priming hole and should only be touching the top of the primer.
