Primer advice for 300WSM and 25-06

I'm fixing to start the reloading process for these two calibers and was wondering what primers some of you guys would recomend ?
I've heard some folks say that a magnum primer is not needed and better accuracy comes from regular large rifle primers with the 300WSM , anybody have any experiance with that??
I generaly use CCI BR-2 primers for all my non magnums but was thinking about trying some Federal Match this go round

The 25-06 will be shooting 115gr bullets and R-22 and H-4831sc for powder.

Re: Primer advice for 300WSM and 25-06

i have found that in the 300wsm mag. primers are not needed,in fact i use the br-2 and the 210m-the mag primers were giving me way too much pressure with loads out of the book that werent even close to max.so i switched to a regular primer and everything fell right into place.as for the 25-06 i cant help you[never loaded for it-lots of 270win though],but i would doubt a mag. primer is necessary.my-2-dave
