    ran into an odd .45 acp casing, It has a small primer and is marked with Win NT. Not sure if this is that new clean power/lead free rounds they put out, but the small primer is a bit odd. if you buy once fired brass be on the look out. (unless you have some small pistol primers I guess)

    Thanks Happyroman,
    But Why do they use small primers I wonder.

    Then they don't hurt you if you're hit with one? :laugh:

    Those have been around a long time, I think. I always pick through .45 acp brass and if I find any I throw them away. It's no fun to have the odd one in a batch you're reloading. :(

    Sometimes on gunbroker you'll see a big lot of those - all small primers.

    They use the small primer as it is all that is needed to ignite the new clean burn powder formulation.. Probably saving a few dollars per 100000 of rounds. Also it makes us watch what we are doing when we reload.. just change the primer anvil and go on the reloading
