Converting brass shell to accept the 209 primer:
1. First use the 15/64 drill bit and drill out the primer hole.
2. Using a 23/64 drill bit, drill a slight recess in the primer hole deep enough to allow the primer rim to seat flush with the bottom of the shell. See photo above.
3. Seat the 209 primer like you would a regular 12 gauge shell when reloading.
Note: Shotgun firing these types of reloads need to be cleaned more often than factory loaded ammo.
