Re: 25-06- Loose Primer Pockets

+1 on the difference in primer brands. I've had no issues with CCI BR2s, but the Win primers seat "looser" than the BR2s. Who can get Federal primers right now to check them?

56 gr of RL22 is MAX load in my 25-06 with 100 gr BT as well...Especially in summer!!!

Good luck getting this resolved, and let us know what you find out,

Re: 25-06- Loose Primer Pockets

I will try some federal 210's. But I think it is the brass. I been using the same lot of primers in 7 different guns and I have no problem with those cases. Thankyou for all your guys input.

Re: 25-06- Loose Primer Pockets

You are having pressure signs by getting loose primer pockets.
You don't need a stiff bolt lift or pierced primers to have pressure issues.
I would either back off your load alittle, or switch to Win or Lapua brass.
Personally, would not go to the trouble of sending brass to Remington as you are at your pressure limit with that load according to quikload.
