Deprimer is leaving spent primers in the case

Oct 10th, 2016
It is very unlikely that the depriming assembly is not pushing the primer out of the case. It is very likely that the spent primer is getting wedged onto the tip of the pin, getting partially pulled back up into the primer pocket. Then the attempt to seat the new primer reseats the primer back into the case. Use medium grit sandpaper or a cratex wheel to round off any square edges on the tip of the depriming pin, so it is less likely to stick to it.

This problem can be exacerbated by wet tumbling.  While we do not recommend wet tumbling it is advised that you deprime prior to wet tumbling.  Otherwise primers can get stuck in the case.  Primers that have been wet tumbled can come apart during depriming which removes the head of the primer but leaves the walls in the case forming a ring.
