Like most folks on this group who reload, I've got thousands of real primers. But it's always good to have a backup plan.

I ordered a Prime-All kit 6 or 8 weeks ago and it finally showed up last week (two months seems like the typical waiting time for this stuff, ...a sign of the times I suppose).

A single batch of this stuff (per the instructions) reloads about 20 primers. I mixed a double batch because it was easier to work with and I wanted at least 30 rounds for testing. I ended up with 37 primers after loosing a few trying to reinstall the primer anvils.

Short answer:
Judging from a really small sample, this stuff appears to work pretty good.
I fired the worst looking 7 primers in an empty case just to make sure they worked, all 7 fired with no problem. I loaded the other 30 with medium loads of 3 different powders (10 each with AR Comp, CFE 233 and VihtaVuori N133) . All 30 fired just fine. ...it was too windy to set up paper targets so I don't know if my groups were bad but I wasn't trying to make match ammo so it doesn't really matter. I punched the barrel at the range and gave everything a good cleaning when I got home (this stuff is mildly corrosive).

I had to deviate from the instructions because snapping the anvils back in was turning into a mess. But once I got my own method down it was easy enough to do.

Pressing the primers into the case was a little nerve racking, I thought a few would go off in the press but none did. ...I used ugly brass and regular ol' 55 grain FMJBT's. ...I set the fired brass aside for the next test, I don't want to use good brass on corrosive primers.

At $20 bucks for a kit that reloads about 2,000 primers, I think it's worth having. I ordered two more kits to stash away in case joe and cameltoe outlaw them in a future anti-gun bill.

I just tried some of this (Prime-All). Sorry to say that my experience was not good. Used 45 ACP case and large primers. I had zero results! Tried twice, five rounds each time. Not one fired in my 1911! I followed the instructions to the letter with NO results. Mixed the powders. fed the primers, used Acetone, installed anvils, and let dry 24 hours. Nothing happened! WTF, Over?

I have ordered several batches of this from them the last couple of years and use them to make BP caps from empty soda cans. It works like a charm although it is a bit tedious to do. But its a heck of a lot better than no time in the field or at the range. Its well worth it in my opinion!!!
