Re: Old Primers

I would bet every one of them pop without a hitch. I've been using a large stash of CCI primers an uncle gave me before he passed that are from the 50's and 60's. Every one has worked and I can't see any difference in performance or accuracy when comparing to new CCI primers that I've bought.

The right side of the wrist, for some reason, wears 2 small brass tacks. I pr...

They are thick as whitetails down where we hunted them. If I lived down there I'd shoot them year round. I much prefer them over whitetail. They taste more like beef to me. Far less "gamey" than whitetail venison.
