Handle with care the dust from spent primers
Lead styphnate dust from spent primers is toxic and breaks down over
time finely enough to waft up your nose if not contained. So claims a
CZ forum, which should be heeded by all who reload.
"Primers use lead styphnate as a binder
and base for the priming compound," the post says. "This is
more or less inert before the primer is detonated. The black granular
material left over inside a spent primer is almost entirely lead styphnate
because the explosive materials are consumed. This material is highly
dangerous because it...breaks down into a dust that is readily inhaled."
The poster puts cases straight from the
ground into an old plastic shopping bag, deprimes without delay, bags
the spent primers. which goes into trash, and showers. Overkill? You be
