Problem: I am loading Remington STS / Gun Club Hulls using Remington 209 primers. While loading them on my MEC 9000, several of these primers have failed to seat in the primer hole as they are partially in and cocked to the right.

Question: How can I safely remove these primers. One thought is to imerse the hull in water, and then to pull them out with a pliers. Does anyone have any other ideas how this could be done in a safe manner.

Thanks

Dave

Well if they are already totally loaded then you will have to cut the shell in half and then take the powder, wad, and shot out and you can deprime them in the reloader.. You can use a shell dismantler for cutting them in half.

If there are no other components in the hull, you can just deprime them in the press, using slow deliberate pressure. Wear your safety goggles or full face shield and don't put yourself too close. Another word of caution....Be sure there is no powder in the loader, just in case.

As a former Safety supervisor, my advice is not to do it. Why take the risk over a $0.10 case & primer? Just throw it away. Darrell

The oil method is the safest for disposal. Consider others safety when you just 'throw them away" Who will be the next to handle your junk? I have removed them in the decapping station but use caution, wear your glasses. Not really the safest thing to do.

If no stuff in shell, use the press. carefully.

Otherwise cut and then deprime the base, toss the hull.

Like was said here already.

Second time for this in 2 weeks.

Shooters - Big Jack "hit the nail on the head" of this topic. I am not concerned with any potential cost saving on recycling a primer. I am more concerned about safety.

With the exception of a live primer, the hulls are dismantled and empty. I could toss the whole thing, but what happens to the next guy who handles my trash? Will the primer go off in his/her face? Will the ignition of the primer cause a fire? Is there a way to make these primers safe without using my press to de-prime these empty hulls?

By the way these primers are "cocked", placing them snuggly into the deprime station is difficult.

Again, thanks for your help.
