Bad idea. If it had fired you would have stuck a bullet in the bore.The jury is out on the cartridge/reloaded theory. I made up two dummy rounds with bullet and primer only. FL sized case primer and bullet. Same, Same, no go. I used one Remington case and one from Winchester. The firing pin strikes looked shallow. Short cases or long chamber are a possibility.
Some of the post from the past spoke of bent transfer bars. Not having a gauge visually the firing pin appeared to be intact.with plenty of protrusion. The cases I used for my test came from the Lee dies. Next, the same test will be done with cases sized in the Lyman FL die. If the results are the same we'll take a look inside. Thoughts on the transfer bar?
