    Making primer cups?

    Hey guys, anyone on here have experience making primer cups? I know this is far out there but I wanted to see if anyone with swaging tools are able to make it work?

    The cups are the easy part, you also have to have the anvils to make them work.

    are you talking black powder percussion caps or primers for smokeless powder?

    I "punch" my own Percussion cap Cups with a custom made punch by MannyCA.

    Black powder primers

    Or centerfire primers?

    Ive see people reusing old ones..

    Ultrasoinc them
    Pop the anvil out
    Use a punch to make the cup flat agian
    Put new priming compon in

    Put he anvil back in

    Let it dry and use it.
