Reloading Primers: Homemade Primer Compound EPS5.

 16092 Views
In General

Variations of this compound can be used to reload 22LRs and percussion caps. Marshall's document (http://www.aardvarkreloading.c....om/resources/Homemad can be found on www.AardvarkReloading.Com. As you will see - the man is a genius. Mix the ingredients in the order he demonstrates and using his techniques. The compound is inert until you add water (of all things). Check your local state laws to make sure it's legal to make and only make it in small quantities. As shown - Marshall makes enough material to reload approximately 100 primers. Other primer compounds can be found in Hatcher's Notebook (ISBN: 978-1-61427-283-0 Published 1948) I will see if I can't find the other formulas (H48) as well. This is great info for you "preppers".

I am easier to find at MeWe.com. I am slammed with FAQ's (and the like) - so it's difficult to monitor all the activity from all the social sites. Thanks and I hope to see you there! https://mewe.com/join/primerreloading

The only material I'm finding difficult to acquire is the Calcium Silicide. Any idea how this formula would act without it?

You can substitute antimony trisulfide chineese needle for the Calcium Silicide it works fine.

@cv59: Thank you for your reply. I have antimony trisulfide on hand and will give it a try.

Actually, my antimony trisulfide is dark pyro which is mesh 325 whereas the chineese needle is mesh 200. Any reason I should use one over the other?

Where does one find these chemicals?

You will have to synthesise Tetrazine from aminoguanidine bicarbonate, and Synthhesise the styphnic acid from resorcinol.

Is this a corrosive recipe?

Good question. No - this one is NOT corrosive. This one IS the primer compound that CCI (if memory serves) uses. Some of these compound are difficult/impossible to purchase but this is one of my favorites as far as primer compounds are concerned.
