Also I was thinking of loading cartridges with cobalt chloride test paper and tossing those rounds into a pond for different lengths of time. So if anyone has access to a private pond/lake within a few counties of DuPage county Il, let me know.


You can safely de-prime a case. I’ve done it plenty of times. I use a lee universal de-primer die.

MikeinNC, I’ve done that a few times myself, I was talking about removing the primer without disturbing the seated round.

Sorry I haven’t felt like going to the garage to seat a few projectiles. This pneumonia from Covid really is kicking my butt.
