Backwards Primer Caught on Video

Hand Load. Primer in Backwards. 9mm

A few months ago I posted an image of a friend of mine getting some time in on steel. His first shot was a dud since the primer was loaded in backwards. Something that can happen on progressive presses. Yes, it was reloads. But I HAVE SEEN this happen with factory ammo as well.

If you shoot long enough, you will see everything.

Well, it just so happens that I happen to have caught the dead-primer incident on tape!



Check those reload especially. Because while I have seen factory ammo do it, the ratio of reloads to factory from my personal observation, which is by no means scientific, ┬áis probably 20 to 1. Or put another way, I’ve only seen this on factory ammunition twice. Over my entire shooting career.
