This is Brother Snow, excellent dude from the 1911 forum - he made a Lexan-protected box and filmed his results:

Thanks for posting this excellent video. Kudos to him for taking time to make the preps to demonstrate the effect. That may save some neophyte or perhaps even an experienced loader from potential injury and grief.

Did you ever wonder why we can even seat a primer in a case and it doesn't (almost never) goes off? The fact that a primer doesn't seat all the way suggests a problem with the case such as a crimped military case and certain brands such as S&B which seem to have tight primer pockets. This is also why they make bullet pullers. I don't know if I am the only one but I check the case with a primer swag tool on every case before I reload. Gives me a chance to check my cases and with 9mm pull out the .380 and 9mm tokarev cases. With 45 separate the small and large primer cases.

Well, that's weird -- Firefox sees it, Safari does not.
