I was thinking about it the other day.

When I lived in FL., a guy had shown me some primers that he was using. They were dome shaped. Not sure, but I believe they were Remington.

These were already several years old, even back then. So we're probably talking 15 years old or more, from today.

They were interesting for sure. I would think it would take a bit less of a strike for ignition.

I THINK he said he had a cup-shaped primer seater (which would make sense)

I hear ya' buddy.

I know these components supposedly last many, many years, but I've always been skeptical. Things like that make me feel good about all this stuff I got here.

I only started reloading in the early 70s' and never bought any domed primers. Did see them in old military surplus from WWII and earlier though.

I started reloading a long time before that and I've never seen any domed primers for sale.

Do you guys also remember wooden packing trays for the primers instead of plastic? My dad kept a few of those old wooden tray primers and yes they were domed. I also inherited factory sealed bricks of my father Herters primers from the sixties, I dont know what I would use them for though. They work but I still have a gut feeling not to trust my life on them. I also have a lot of left over Alcan reloading supplies the old man left me as well.
Let me know if you guys ever need Herters or Alcan reloading data, because I now possess it. [smilie=icon_lol.gif]

Back in the 80's I bought a box of old Herters brand loading tools dirt cheap at a Sun City estate sale. I did come across some Herters brand domed primers. I shot them all up with zero failures. To give you an idea of the age. There were also some Remington brand primers with a 23 cent price tag.
