9mm reload

While depriming and reloading range brass (9mm) Depriming pin pulled out and stuck in the case. This was after hundreds of reloads.NP Headstamp is DAG 10CO852 9X19 SRA4 Pin is not pulling out of primer pocket. is this a special primer? Looking in case does not appear to be berdan. Any help?

More than likely a crimped in place primer and/or a tight primer pocket and a smaller flash hole.

In all likelihood it is as said above, a crimped pocket. NATO Spec 9 x 19 mm brass has crimped pockets.

I'm guessing you hit a berdan primed case... If force is used it is often possible to drive a de-priming pin through the bottom of a berdan case and knock the primer out... often with the results you reported.

DAG is a German head stamp if I recall and German means berdan primed unless the ammo is made for the U.S. market.

If you can get the case out of the press I'd just contact the die maker (if it is Dillon, Redding or RCBS and perhaps others) they will give you replacement parts you lost in the malfunction....

If you can't get the case out of the press, I'd call the die or press maker and ask for advice... they have doubtless encountered this before...

I"m betting on the primer being berdan.

FWIW

Chuck,

The OP stated that he looked in the case and it did not appear to be a Berdan primered case. Interesting situation, and I hope that the OP gives us the answer so that we can all learn from it.

I saw that Doc, but I'm still inclined toward the problem being a berdan primer... when the de-priming rod penetrates the end of the case it can look like a boxer primer.

Add that to the head stamp and I still think it is berdan.

I have been wrong before... but absent more info I'll stick with berdan.

FWIW

Chuck,


You may well be correct on this one. I hope the OP comes back to his thread and lets us know what he found out. If he perforated the Berdan primer with the decapping rod, then he really "hogged down" on the lever!!!

I hope he tells us too... With a big modern press with lots of MA and a really hard de-capping pin you can pop right through the bottom of the berdan case... Please don't ask me how I know ( Has to do with 'get a bigger hammer' I suppose )

One thing is sure, if you ram through the base of a berdan case life can be really interesting afterward...

Hope we find out...

It appears that the OP is not going to return to his/her thread and reveal the answer to the mystery.....shame, but it happens so very often.

Indeed. It usually means the OP got the answer he/she needed - end of story - and moved one.
