    Damp primers

    Long story short, we lost our home to a fire this past Tuesday.
    I had several boxes of primers that got damp but not soaked. I believe only the outer box was damp but not sure as it took about 48 hours to get to them.
    Are they junk? Not worth risking to use? Maybe test?

    Thanks, Matt

    I would load them in ammo I am not depending on to save my life, or my families lives, or to win a match.

    I cant imagine losing my home to a fire. And all of it contents. Is this really all that concerns you? A few bucks in primers?

    Is there anything you or your family needs?

    To be honest, thinking about this kind of stuff gets my mind off of the rest of it all. We’ve been sifting through the rubble for “important “ things for the last three days.
    So far, insurance has been fantastic and everyone we have dealt with has been very helpful. Biggest issue now is finding a semi permanent place to live while our place is demo’ed and rebuilt. Two big dogs makes finding a local rental much harder especially for a short term lease.

    I've read that water won't hurt a primer but I haven't personally tested that. Sorry for the loss of your home. That's terrible. Hopefully everyone is ok.

    I gambled and bought a few thousand primers whose boxes had been water damaged. Normally, when I gamble I lose, but this time I won. Every blessed one of them worked just fine and I had saved a pretty fair chunk of change.

    Look into the possibility of an on site trailer to live in temporarily.

    No no way I want to live in a trailer the next several months while rebuilding!

    Once they dry, they are fine. Primer compound is worked wet at the factory for safety reasons. It's designed to get wet and dry out fine.
