and loaded them, one at a time, in my Beretta
I pulled the trigger on them and they all
failed to "pop".
They were dead. Here's a picture of the
dents in the primer made by the pistol.
Good, hard strikes, but no joy.
There is no question that penetrating oil
will "kill" a primer, if sprayed
into the open end of the primer.
But how would it affect loaded ammo?
