I'm curious. Have you found a source of berdan primers or are you converting the cases to use boxer primers? As far as I know berdan primers have not been imported in a few years so I'd definitely be interested if you have found a source.

I used to get them from a place in Kansas I think and stocked up at the time. I have maybe 2k left but I do find them still at gunshows at a somewhat reasonable cost. I found a few adds on gunbroker that were crazy. I’ll see if I can find the link to the place I used to order from.

Sir, I was told that repriming the berdan case was difficult do to the different diameter and controlling the seating depth. Which priming tool do you use? Did you run into any problems with controlling seating depth? Any tips you can share with us?

Thanks

Itís not hard, but it is more of a ďfun projectĒ than being cost effective etc I have not had any issues with seating depth but there are specific berdan primers for AK vs Mosin etc that is a little more restrictive than the large vs small boxer rifle primers that we are used to. I have a tool that I made specifically for berdan depriming. Works with a Lyman M die and water. Works like a charm but like I said, itís a project. I have 4 of the tools left if your really interested. $22 bucks shipped.
