Re: primer selection

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.

Re: primer selection

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.

Re: primer selection

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.
