    Many thanks harry,your pic shows what looks like a bush for the primer to screw in to,which is damaged on mine,i will get a new bush made to pattern. As to the primer,is this used on other cases?Cheers T.

    Hi T
    If you like I could try & cut the one out of this projectile, the only thing is you would only get the head of the primer, the flash tube bells out & you can't get it through the hole so you have to cut it off.
    The other thing you can do is try & find the carrying handle see photo

    Just looked at mine,i think i understand your explanation.I think the easiest answer is to find the carrier! Is the shell you showed u/s? By the way is this common round? Thanks T.
