Dry them in a warm dry place and they will be fine.

Primer compound is actually mixed, molded and mounted while wet. When it dries is when it becomes fun.

That said, there is no way for you to be certain it was ONLY water that affected the primers.

Your best bet it to contact the seller and shipper for either a refund or a new product. There should be no additional charges or hazmat fees for something that wasn't your fault.

If you can't get this for whatever reason, load up a hundred or two and let them fly. Even if the 'tests' were positive for function, I would still relegate any ammo from these primers as 'practice' ammo and not hunting, defensive, or competition ammo.

Thank you all I talked to them and Wow something I did not expect they are sending me 5k more for free and said keep the others and use them if you want.
Now thats old fashioned customer service I thought was extinct.

Being from Florida the best way to take water out of the air is A/C. So it would not need to be warm just a room that is having the moisture sucked out of it. Of course in a cooler part of the world putting them in a room with a dehumidifier for a few day should dry them out.

I will buy primers from them the next time I am running low.

Thanks for sharing - that is excellent customer service.
