pulled tracer question
« on: January 30, 2009, 05:32:20 pm »
Anyone here ever loaded pulled tracer bullets? I have a bunch of 53 gr M196 red tip I got a while back at a gun show. Was wondering what powder works best ect. Also, any good cheep ways to remove primer crimps on cases? I need to start using up the brass I have been collecting for a million years since its not easy to find loaded ammo at a decent price anymore.

    Well the dillon pocket swadger isn't cheap, but it works awesome.  Other options are the RCBS unit(which works ok, I use mine quite a bit), or you can cut the crimp off by hand with a cmamfer tool. 

    As far as powder, I'd imagine BCL-2 would be fine.

    I guess all the money you saved on the primer tool you can put toward powder.  ;D

    I use a Hornady primer pocket reamer tool:

    I use it to get the primer pocket square and then deburr the edge with a 3/8" drill bit in my cordless drill.

     I shall to tell my secret: I never, ever use cases with crimped primers. But if, then Mora knife  ;)
