    Vintage CCI Shotshell primers

    Not really what you might call "old", but I'd not seen the packaging before. Lots of stuff showing up at the swap meets these days, people are really cleaning out!

    A buddy came across multiple 1000's of the "Remington" sized primers for next to nothing.

    He's been loading them all summer in AA hulls. He's figured out which fast food soda straws will work as bushings to be able to use the small primers in the big 209 sized hole.

    He shoots 10-20 lines of skeet and trap per week, he still has 3000 plus primers left, he only shoots them out of fixed breech shotguns. Claims the "bushing" has the potential to get down in the action on pumps and autoloaders.

    I've got too many weird friends.

    When I posted this I thought they were pretty cool, but fully intended to give them a try. Didn't know that in the old days they were different sizes! Thanks for the heads up 15meter!
