    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Hope they all work for you. Might ought to load a few dummies and try them before you commit the whole batch.

    I learned my lesson about 20 years ago with some big rifle primers in a big box of reloading stuff I bought at a sale. Not sure how old they were or how they were stored but the trays all looked in good shape, the box just looked old. Loaded up a couple hundred 444 marlin rounds that I wound up having to pull when only a couple out of the first dozen or so rounds I tried would fire. I was sick. Now I test my primers and keep them away from oil and moisture etc. I generally only pull a few out at a time so I’m not unnecessarily handling the lot.

    Last year I found several boxes of primers from the late 70s; stored in a non climate controlled mini warehouse; everyone of them went bang

    Well that sounds like the perfect scenario.
    But ya just never know. That’s why it’s smart to try a few before you commit a pile of components and time. That was my point anyway.
