Thread: hornady hand priming tool denting primers

    hornady hand priming tool denting primers

    I have a hornady hand primer and it leaves a very shallow dent in the primer. Ignored this but last time I was reloading one went boom. No damage but would rather it didnt happen again. Have checked all components and as far as I can tell Im using it as instructed. Wonder if anyone else has had this issue?

    Don't know the hornady primer but in the RCBS the rod which pushes the primer up has a flat surface on one end and a convex on the other. If it is the same with the Hornady could you have the push rod the wrong way round?

    You are using the large rifle primer rod not the small primer one

    Anyone here having trouble with Hornady's Hand Priming Tool?

    this is what the primers look like. There is a couple of suggestions to try on this thread so will not give up on it yet.

    Still think it looks like pushrods is to small in diameter after seeing pics
