Have read your reloading "primer" here with great interest and enjoyment. Got question. I have a ton of Berdan primed, brass mil surplus ammo for my Mausers and have been researching reloading of Berdan primed cases. Seems like the only significant barrier is the lack of availability of primer caps here in the States. Are there other issues?

I have no experience with reloading Berdan primed cases, so I can only guess at problems with doing so. I have heard the case life is short compared to regular primed cases, as the primer anvil is part of the case and takes a hit every time it's fired.
