    Berdan Primers

    Hello All I think we know the answer but is there any Berdan Primers out there or do just go to new brass and Boxer?

    I have a carton of large ones that I got about 10 years ago. You can't find them now.
    Many convert the brass to boxer. There is a long thread on how to do it on here.
    There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialismóby vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide. Ayn Rand

    Russia's intervention in Ukraine caused U.S. sanctions which stopped the import of its Berdan primers to the U.S. Russia's Marom Berdan primers were sold under several different brand names; PMC, PPU, and TulAmmo. There are other makers but nobody else was/is exporting them to the U.S. I forsaw what could happen and bought 10K from Graf and Sons. There likely won't be any Berdan primers shipped here in the forseeable future.
