    Good luck Finding them but I like Federal. especially for the big powder cans like weatherby. they have the hottest spark if you live in a cold climate.

    Federal or CCI. In a standard large rifle I like the CCI BR-2, these are available now, at least off and on from a few suppliers. For the Mag rifles, I've been using Fed 215 and Fed 215GM. Both work good.

    Wolf primers are getting good reviews, and are easily available from Powder Valley, Brunos, etc. I started loading them in 6mmBR last fall, but don't know whether they are better than CCI BR2's just yet.
