Primers: Lead-Free Primer Evaluation

Primers: Lead-Free Primer Evaluation

Most of our regular readers are familiar with my previous work on primers with Bob Jensen (if you aren't go to the Index and look up the Primer section). What many of you may not know is that there is a lead-free version of the well known Russian primers. Recently, we provided some samples of these to researchers at the US Air Force Academy who prepared a very interesting test and article documenting their findings. I won't attempt to summarize them for you, but if you're interested, the complete article, published by the Department of Defense's Weapon Systems Technology Information Analysis Center can be read by clicking this link.
