Made a mistake, is it a problem???

I got new brass and started with CCI primers in 50 cases but the load wasn't working. So I went back to Win primers on the next 50 and the load worked great. Problem is after cleaning and case prep, I put Win primers in all and noticed the ones that had previously used CCI primers were a very easy fit for the Win primers. Not falling out loose but very easy to put in.

Will this afffect accuracy??? That is 50 cases fit the Win primers tight and 50 fit the Win primers not so tight??? Am I stressing for no reason???


Thanks,
Kyle

Maybe the load with the CCI primers was a bit "hot" and the bases are a little larger now.

I don't think it'll make much difference in accuracy but your case life may be a little short for those 50.

Maybe so, Dave but I was thinking I read somewhere that CCI's were a little bigger in diameter.

i dont think it'll affect accuracy as weakened primer pockets still shoot the same as tight ones in my stick, however you might experience a slight drop in pressure. seems i need to add an extra click or two to have them get the same POI as newer brass.

5R8

Got a micrometer??? I'd be interested to know if they are of different sizes... I guess it'd theoretically be possible to carve a bit of brass off the sides of the primer pocket with a sharp primer cup but it sure seems like it'd be a hard push that first time in... (I know... but we ain't going there!!)

This is in a 280 Rem, so yes Large Rifle. Sad thing is I read there was a difference prior to this loading. But I was not sharp enough to consider going back to Win primers.

DOHHHH!!!
