Ever run through a huge pile of .45 ACP brass and not know where it all originated? Like a lot of my friends, on occasion I’ll purchase once-fired brass in 1000 unit lots. And then that’s when the fun begins.Of course it needs to be inspected. Ya know, for the usual suspects such as beaten up rims, split cases and just about anything else that can become a future problem. And after a while, all those cases begin to look a lot alike.
So, off of his table Marty handed over a primer gauge for me to inspect. It’s a simple concept.
A piece of high-impact resistant plastic is not molded but machined. The user simply places the case’s base into the gauge’s milled recess, and then turns it over to inspect for a large or small pistol primer.
We all have been faced with a small primer round sneaking into our brass pile. And we’ve all had one of those darn things go crunch as it tried to pass through the resizing die. At this point whatever rhythm you had in the reloading process is long gone—as you replace a decapping pin.Marty has exposure on Ebay. Take a look and see for yourself to determine if this thing would have merit on your reloading bench.
Heck, they make great stocking stuffers.
