It was interesting. However the collet of your bullet puller was being used upside down, the domed side should be towards the nut which has a slight bevel so it tightens on the case. Removing the primer was interesting as well and would not ever do it in such a violent way, driving the anvil against the primer charge wafer with the punch against the cup with a hammer could cause firing. Whether the lip spreading was a fix is questionable as well. This type of mag has the release point, parallel or slightly narrower than the back, this helps to resist inertia feeding, so would find live fire after relaxing the lips to be required to see.

Yes Log man you are correct i had the collet on backwards, lolz good catch. its tough trying to keep your train of thought while filming. i thing i repeated the steps a few times to get the video correct. and as far as the primer, WD-40 deactivates the primer you can smack it as hard as you want that it wont go off.

The video does not indicate the primer was deactivated, nor does it look like anything was done besides driving the primer out, others not knowing what is safe and isn't, won't have a clue.
