Could you post a picture of your gizmo? I would like to make one, or something similar. A fellow who was moving gave me 2 cases of reloads, but he said they were pretty hot, and didn't think I should shoot them, but could salvage some of the components. I hate cutting up good hulls Several nice old blue Remington Peters, and the old silver AA's..not much choice though, I dont want to spend hours picking them open.Old Vet said:I made one for myself. Installed 2 cutting blades (x-acto knife blades).
Two scrap pieces of oak, 1 little brass hinge, 2 knife blades I had laying around in my tool box.....total cost....around $2.00....MAYBE. :wink:
The cut line made by the "Shark"....and my home made gizmo is 1 1/4" down from the top of the shell. Works great.
Not sure I would want to save the spent primers to use at all, don't they contain a lot of lead residue from the primer mix?12GA guy said:.I've been saving my spent primers to fill a shot bag, to use as a sand bag for my rifle target shooting.
