Is that the deal where you remove the bit of plastic that bothers non-remington primers but doesnt cause issues for remington primers? Thin I read that on SGW.Yep. There's a drill bit that fits perfectly into the remington hull primer pocket that will eliminate the problem permanently. Takes a little time but works. Someone will come along with the bit size.
I dunno quite what dustydoo is referring about the "center of the primer pushing out", it would be the entire primer pushed back out. Some may not experience this, many have. The left primer is the Remington primer, notice the longer radius on the top of the primer. Much like you would set the final station on your Mec to radius the shell. Most other primers are more flat at this point, and WILL catch and hold up on that plastic at the upper end of the primer pocket on GunClub hulls. Most just set their springs tighter on station 2 to remedy this issue. YMMV if you use another brand of loader.^^^^^
I agree. From the photos I do not see anything unusal about the primers.
To your question.I have noticed the Winchester primers do this,but not the factory Remington.
The center of the fired Winchesters are pushed outward, where the Remington are not . Any ideas for this?

I misunderstood his original intent also. His pic is of the top of the primer, the fired side. I think he is asking about why the Winchesters seem to "open up" more than the Remington. I think after this reply, I'm gonna go get some popcorn and enjoy the replies, and see how wrong I was again.OK. Maybe I understand what he's trying to explain??? The Win. primer is installed correctly when the shell is assembled. He loads the shell and fires it. The Win. primer that was flush to the shell is now coming back outward when he opens his shotgun???
If this is the case. I would bet at some point in time. This hull was reloaded with a oversized European type primer. A Nobel Sport or a Rio Primer, I expect. If this is the case then the American sized Win. primers will continue to fall out. This hull must now have oversized primers if you want to continue reloading the hull!!! I think this is what is happening??? Mmm break em all jeff
