Loading up some 7.62x54r rounds for just some casual shooting, so I am using salvaged primers - i.e. primers I punched ouot of other rounds that were unshootable for one reason or another.

I fumble-fingered the primer getting it into the installation cup, and it bounced around a few times....then hit the floor and rolled under the bench. And it's the last primer of the batch.

Dangit.

I crawl around under there with a flashlight looking, because, hey, it's a primer. Probably worth $20 these days.

And I find it !

Sort of...

Looks like it's missing something. The anvil fell out when it bounced around. I have no idea where it is...

crawl around more, turn off the lights and hold the flashlight parallel to the floor....

Lo ! What is this ?

I found another primer ! a complete one this time ! Woo-Hoo !


But there's still an anvil down there lurking in the dark amongst the other detritus...

This is gonna bug me.
