Biggest Primer I've ever used!
 
Found this souvenir in my junk drawer.
Next to a 357 Mag for comparison

Could have made $5 if it was still live. Tried to find a firing pin picture. I imagine it is pretty large...

thats a primer for artillery.
Ive used them too!
nothing like 20+lbs of powder for a 155mm shell...

Sweet.

When they make a 1911 frame that will shoot it I will be buying one...

155mm would make an excellent home defense round.
