    If you look down the inside the case, it will have one or two holes for the spark from the primer.
    One hole is reloadable and two is practically unreloadable.

    The ppu is probably one hole and the cac is probably two hole

    The unreloadable Berdan primers are also larger, copper coloured and will probably be headstamped CAC VII and a year

    So had a look there is PPU, CAC, SR & ML cases in there.
    PPU is all one hole and the rest is a mix some one hole and some 2 holes.
    Sorry guys didn't realise there was an unrelodable type.

    They are all reloadable, you just need a different tool to deprime the Berdan (two flash holes) primers.
    Look up hydraulic deprimer on youtube.
