    2 ways where you quick reply at the bottom of the thread you can leave a closed message and then below where it says "Show your signature" pick the Close this thread box and post the reply or ask a mod. I left it open so you can try it if you want.

    Look under Thread Tools right above your post in this thread. I have never used it but I suspect you start a new thread but then pick thread tools to build your poll. Good luck.

    I use a sharp utility knife to take a thin sliver of brass off the rim of the ones I have a problem with. Mostly 7.62 but some 5.56 as well. They then accept the primer easier.
