Finally, a .25 ACP brass priming kit with all the tools necessary for priming those .25 ACP brass cases for use in the .25 ACP breech plug conversion!This .25 ACP brass priming kit is handy and so compact, you can take it with you to quickly and easily re-prime your .25 ACP brass whether on a hunting trip or just a trip to the range.
I still remember when I received my new breech plug conversion. I was really exited about getting to the range and testing some bullets with it. I had already gotten some CCI 400 small rifle primers. Then I realized that in order to use them I had to get them into the .25 ACP MagTech brass cases. This required tools that I just didn't have.
A few phone calls later and I knew what I needed, but I still had to find a place that sold these tools. I found a place that had the Lee Auto Prime and the correct shell holder for the cases I was using, so I ordered them. I couldn't remember the size and type of punch I would need, so back on the phone and this time I wrote it down (a 1/16" pin punch). Never heard of one, much less where to get one. I drove to Wal Mart. Surely they would have them. They didn't. I finally found the punch I needed at Sutherlands.
OK, now I had the punch, all I had to do was wait for the Lee Auto Prime and shell holder to arrive.
The other day I was talking to one of my customers and he made what I thought was an excellent suggestion. He suggested that I put together a kit that contained all of the tools necessary for priming and re-priming the .25 ACP MagTech brass that come with the breech plug conversion. Well, I try to keep an open mind so that is exactly what I did.
Now, finally a kit that contains the exact tools needed to prime and re-prime your .25 ACP MagTech brass that can be ordered all together in one box from one place for only $32.95!
Occasionally someone needs just a pin punch or just the .25 ACP brass shell holder, so...
I have been asked by a few people what I use to hold the .25 ACP MagTech brass while I punch the spent primers out? Well, I just took a small block of wood, about 4"x4"x1" and drilled a few holes just a little bigger than the CCI 400 small rifle primer clear through the wood. Then I took a drill bit the exact size of the .25 ACP MagTech brass and using the initial holes as a center, I drilled another hole just deep enough to hold the brass in place so I could punch the spent primer out through the hole in the center. This is just one way to do it. I am sure there are more creative ways one could come up with.
