CCI and Winchester 45ACP w/small pistol primers


Recommended Posts

I pick up brass every time I go to the range. I've accumulated quite a bit of many many different calibers over time. I couple years ago I noticed I couldn't get a primer in a 45ACP case. When I looked more carefully at the case I noticed the primer pocket looked too small for a large pistol primer. It sure was - a small pistol primer pocket in a 45ACP, made by Winchester with a headstamp "Winchester NT".

Fast forward to today I sorted a bunch of brass and much to my chagrin I saw many CCI Blazer brass cases with small pistol primer pockets! What a nightmare for the reloader.....
