    Do you use their popper or just the normal decapper?

    Both. The popper is much better.

    The popper gets used on my 9mm, 45, 223 and 308 processing toolheads. Basically anywhere that I might get a crimped in primer.

    Primed 93 rounds of .45 Colt.

    I bought 100 wet tumbled cases from Maverick reloading. Received 103. Seven were too short. Three are S&B that measure at .206 in the primer pocket so I am guessing they were crimped? They did not accept the primers as easily as the others, so I set them aside.

    I would guess the short ones were likely Hornady and started life as FTX rounds as they require shorter brass for those loads. If the S&B need swaging, I have a Dillon Swager that will clean them up quick.

    Thanks for the offer. It's only three cases so not a big deal.

    The short ones aren't FTX short. They are 1.270ish, I trimmed all to 1.275. The shorties I will turn into snap caps. The Ruger manual says it's fine to dry fire the Blackhawk but some hot glue or silicone will make me feel better about the firing pin.
