Patience pays off

2 posts in this topic

My partner and I have been hunting a short term CS camp for about 8 years.  The finds are relatively few but this is the field where I found my AVC button so it keeps drawing me back hoping that that next plow will turn up something awesome.  

One thing that always turns up are broken pieces to Selma Arsenal friction primers we believe that about 4 or 5 boxes were dropped since we have recovered parts to approx 50 of them.   Over the years I have kept all the small parts and reassembled them as I find enough parts - one thing that has eluded me were the wires that was used to ignite the powder in the tubes.  Today I went back out after a recent plowing and tried a new tactic using zero disc and dug the very low (0-6) VDI targets and was rewarded with 5 wires so i now have 6 restored primers to display.
