    The only primers that I have had go off were with the Lee "tap and BANG" dies while seating a primer. Never had one go off while decapping. And I have used many that I have punched out in plinking loads without any misfires. I get MORE misfires...

    Have you checked to see if the brass needs trimming? That and a heavy crimp will cause fits..... I have a .309 expanding die that I use for both my 30/30 and 30-06. Both of my rifles are single shots, but a LOT of the 30/30 rounds that I loaded...

    I have made a bunch of .45 Colt sized with my old FreeChex II and Pepsi cans folded over once. On a whim I decided to try some on boolits for my .44 Mag and they did just fine. Remember that these were aluminum checks. I dunno if copper checks will...

    I bought an RCBS primer Pocket swager to get the crimp out of some 30-06 brass that I'm guessing was Greek. The paperwork said to be careful or one could bend the rod. They were right.
