I load my carry ammo in them. That way they don’t get mixed with my range ammo.
Funny, but I use the same ALL canisters to store my brass

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 have a 1 gallon ziplock about full with them. Someday!
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.
