Re: federal 215 primers vs cci
Most of my loads that worked with one worked with the other, loads that didn't like one didn't like the other, 215M on the other hand, I get those when ever I can. But at the end of the day it's what ever primer works for that load the best regardless of brand.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
