    This is an FYI

    Federal American Eagle Syntech .45 auto "Range Ammunition"

    The cases have small primers. No big deal, but you need to keep the cases separate for reloading.

    Bob,

    Thanks for the info. When I go to the range I pick up range brass and sort them out after I tumble them. Once in a while I will get a Federal round with a small primer or an N/T (non toxic) round. I also get some Blazer rounds and just pitch them. Something else to look for and think about. Thanks again!

    Tommy

    I really never understood why some 45 acp cases were made with small primers when the historical standard had been large primers. Seems odd unless there was a large primer shortage a some point different than the smaller ones in he recent past. ?ky

    I figure it's $$. It usually is.

    You are probably right. $$. Always follow the money.
    I was loading this morning and guess what, in my brass I picked up 1 small 45 acp case with a small primer. No big deal just a stoppage to remove it from the press and isolate it in a container just for small primers. KY
