You will notice that the primer magazines and primer pick-up tubes have different colored tips. They have been color coded to help you identify size more easily.
The color code is as follows:
Blue Small Primer Magazine Orifice
Red Large Primer Magazine Orifice
Yellow Small Primer Pick-up Tube Green Large Primer Pick-up Tube
Never forget that primers are potentially dangerous. Never hit them or attempt to force them.
