    I load my carry ammo in them. That way they don’t get mixed with my range ammo.

    The person that came up with the idea of using Small pistol primers on .45 cases should be drawn and quartered!

    I separate, load, and shoot 'em. Ain't no big deal. Resistance to change can be a powerful thing.

    I try to separate them but inevitably I have 1 or 2 that try to go through the press and get hung up on the primer station.

    Back when we had that run on reloading supplies I was very happy to have some of those when the LGS had no large pistol primers.

    I load'em and shoot'em...I just hate when they get mixed in with the LP brass...and that seems to happen despite my best efforts.

    I load them and put them in my stash that I shoot when I go shoot at places that it's hard to recover my brass (muddy, swampy, high grass … areas).

    BTW, I reload boxer primed steel and do the same thing. As a side note you can also reload Berdan primed cases in a pinch. The depriming pin easily punches through the case and creates a regular flash hole, and a regular primer fits right in. I wouldn't do this with a high pressure round (probably could though, but I ain't pushing my luck), but I've done it with .45 acp, just to see if I could, and I had no issues with them. Oh, and aluminum cases too.

    I've reloaded the steel cases up to 3 times, just testing them out, maybe coulda gone more, but honestly I usually don't even pick them up after shooting them after one reload. It was more of an experimental thing just to see if I could.

    They are a PITA. When one sneaks in when I'm picking up my brass at the range, I hold onto them. They either get used for making dummy rounds when I'm working with a new bullet or, as noted above, they are good to reload and use when you know you won't be able to find most of your brass after shooting.
