If you load range brass , inspect each one for brass with small pistol primers ( large pistol primers have been SOP for ever in .45 ACP ) .

On a LM , a brass with a SP primer will cause PROBLEMS , if you are set up for LP primers . I expect the same with all progressives ?

Sort any brass with SP primers into a batch . Load then as a batch , after you have changed the primer assembly to the one for SP primers .

As far as I know, all .45 ACP brass with small primers is marked "NT" on the head stamp. It stands for "Non Toxic"

Best I remember , I have found 2 other headstamps , besides NT headstamp , with SSP ?

Seems like some of the Blazer is one of them ? Can not recall the other ? ( Some of the Federal? )

NT is Winchester's headstamp .

Hmmmm. I saw NT on more than one brand of brass though.

I just checked about 300 pcs of small primer 45acp brass of which the sampling is Blazer, Fiocchi, CCI and Federal, and none of those have the NT stamped on them.

NT is Non-Toxic primer, primers without lead styphate.

Multiple vendors mark head with NT. Most of my 223 is Winchester NT.

Is there any difference in the primer pockets , with NT .223 ( first I have heard of this ? ) ? They are already SRP's ?

Yup, standard SRP.

NT is just a gimmick to pass EPA/greenie nonsense. They act like lead doesn't just come out of the ground or something.
