38 Long Colt Ballon head cases

reno:
Has anyone out there had trouble decapping  old balloon head cases? Have 25 have had trouble with. I don't think the decapping pins are long enough  to push the old primers out as they look deeper than solid head cases. I broke a pin trying to do the job. Also wonder if they are safe for Trail Boss powder.
Thanks
Reno

Drydock:
Should not make a difference.  Sure they're not Berdan cases?

reno:
Drydock, thanks for the reply,  all I know is it looks like the primer pockets are deeper than a solid head. I forgot to say they are old WRA. CO cases,  and I've loaded for years and never seen this before, if I can't deprime them I sure can't reload them.
Thanks Drydock.

Coffinmaker:
Hmmmm.  25 cases.  Not sure they would be worth the aggravation.  Not that this helps the OP at all.  Nope.  Nada.

Play Safe out There

somewhere on the shelf is most of a cigar box full of balloon head .45 Colt cases. I can't do much with them because they do not have the extractor groove like new cases do. They are almost rimless and unless I want to dig out the Ideal tong tool they will stay in the box.
