A: Boxer primed ammo can be easily reloaded because there is one central flash hole, which allows a decapping pin to pass straight down and remove the spent primer. The alternative is Berdan priming, which uses two flash holes that are off center and do not promote easy removal. Boxer primed is the most common, especially when it comes to American and Western European ammo. As long as both are non-corrosive (like this Fiocchi ammo), though, there are no real drawbacks to either if you do not reload.
