    You are not supposed to use a center punch for a firing pin.

    I was talking to Dennis about this but I forgot he was spending quality time with his wife. It is a hot load and it shot real good but I thought they were looking flat so I will back it down some thanks

    Are those actually pierced or just the way they look in the pic? I'm okay with flattened primers in summer temps. In winter temps, there could be issues during the summer with certain powders.
