    Western No. 1 1/2 Primers

    ..............These are small pistol size, but thought I'd double check if small rifle, or small pistol. The card board slip case (Slides over a routed wooden tray) printed in blue ink says: 100 No. 1 1/2 Western, IMPROVED, Non-Mercuric, Non-Corrosive PRIMERS
    FOR SMOKLESS POWDER
    Made in USA Western Cartridge Company, Div Olin Corp.

    The primers are nickel plated. I have a couple thousand of them and have had'em for umpteen years. Since I just acquired a S&W Hand Ejector 32 S&W-L and a Colt Police positive taking the same ammo I thought it would be fitting to use these primers in those revolvers.

    Thanks a bunch, and I appreciate any responses.
