    Didn't click. I wonder what a "leadless" primer is?
    Is it lame?

    Nope, they just don't use the lead styphnate that you'd usually find in a primer. The appeal is supposed to be for indoor ranges - less airborne lead.

    I don't trust their ammo.
    that was one of my local indoor ranges when I was still living in LA. Tried their ammo a few times and general would run into 2-3 rounds per 100 that were squibs. And it felt like they were low powered loads...i never ran a chrono to verify.
    its possible they're reloads are much better now. The last time I was there was 2 years ago.

    They've improved immensely since your times Jungle. I've checked them out last year and their setup is pretty clean and nicely done. I was impressed with their setup actually compared to others.

    I think it's an anti conspiracy. Don't those primers "last" (lol), after a fashion, like a couple whole days?

    :D I really don't know - I've never tried them. I don't even know what's in them, just what's not in them.

    Yea I hear you. One thing about those 100 year old nasty primers is that they work.

    Indeed. I did shoot some 9mm a few years ago that was supposedly stored underground for a few decades. There was a noticeable delay between the click and the boom - more than 1/4 second - and then what seemed like a sharper than normal recoil. I decided I didn't want to keep shooting the stuff. On the other hand, I've shot 50 year old Com-block 7.62 from spam cans that ran great.
