I just hacked it open & ripped it open a piece at a time while praying I don't hit a primer.Vice grips on the end of the pull strip or tin snips could work. Maybe a BFH! Denny
Then throw the Needle nose pliers away cuz you can't open them to remove the rolled tin.Just grab the stub of that "pull off" tab with a pair of Needle nose pliers. Then Twist the pliers until you ROLL the tab all around the can.....BINGO it is open!
I had the same thing in the last batch that I bought.Glad you didn't use the hammer. You might check out the paper and the ammo wrappers...sometimes they used cut up documents (gov. papers?) for them. Denny
