    This is an update on my wet primers.
    I had 1,000 Fiochetti 209 primers that got soaked in clean water for a couple of days from a frozen water pipe.
    I dried them out and loaded one primer (I picked one of the rusty ones), loaded into empty hills and fired them.
    They all went Bang.
    I plan on relegating these to light loads, and my other primers for stout loads.
    Thanks for the advise.
