Re: Primers for 300 RUM w Retumbo
Hello Wayne. There are plenty of circumstances that can lead to no ignition of primers. Of course that's no news to everyone. I had a bad BRICK of Remington primers straight off the shelf in Iowa in 1996.
I know that the regular primer may not be as hot as the magnum but do you think it's possibe the guy got ahold of a bad lot?
I've used Federal 210Match in magnums for about 13 yrs just to experiment and I've never had one fail, including 300 Weatherby and 7STW. And these loads were used in real real cold weather for hunting only. I also use 215M and I do think it is the most appropriate primer for magnums however, if you choose a bullet and a powder and cannot seem to get the load to group tight, utilizing a regular primer can be a choice. For whatever reason, I've found this to influence accuracy almost as much as seating depth. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
