Here is the issue. I have a rifle match on Sunday and I ran out of Remington 9 1/2 primers. I use 49.5 grains of H380 and a 168SMK bullet. I can't find any Remington primers near my location in central Indiana and I have no time to order them. Will switching primers cause a major issue and what primer should I use???
Location: The rifle range, or archery range or behind the computer in Alaska
Re: Help...Primer problem!
Yes it can make a differance. I have even had a new lot of the same type change my loads. If you know exactly what youre average MV is that is a place to start. Sometimes you wont have to change anything. Other times it could take slightly more or slightly less powder to duplicate the original.
Let us know how your match goes! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
Thanks for the assistance with this issue. I was able to purchase 300 Remington primers last night so I should be OK until after the match. I may switch to Federal primers after this week but I hate to mess with what works.
