Re: .308 Primer Recommendation

not to really hijack the thread...but, I bought CCI 200 primers, would it be worth my while to buy some Fed 210M to try out?

Depends on how happy you are with your current performance. I have found good performance with standard primers. I think that it is more important to have a sufficient quantity of whatever primers work well with the same lot# than shooting match primers just for the sake they are match grade.

You should always back down a hair and work up when changing components.

But, BR2 and 210M are great primers for your objective.
BR2's are awesome primers.

In my limited experiance you simply cant go wrong with CCI Primers.

Re: .308 Primer Recommendation

A new military load in 7.62X51 with the 175gr SMK in military brass with markings FC 08, FC 07 on the bottom ( head stamp ) of the case 41.7 of IMR4064 and a 210M primer.
Did a work up on this load and was pleased with the results went up to 42.2 of IMR 4064 in my
M1A stock and shot a 3/4 center to center group at 2600fps, have not tried it in a bolt gun...
In standard Federal brass have loaded Speer 180gr spbt bullet and RL-17 with a 210M 23" barrel 308 got 2742 fps with a submin group.
All above was prep with just doing primer pockets, flash holes, neck sizing after a small base die sizing .335 Redding bushing on all cases.

Re: .308 Primer Recommendation

I ONLY use Federal primers. I use non match primers in rifles with loads I know will be relatively close, like black bear hunts I go on and close deer shots in many spots I hunt. When it comes to slinging some lead some distance I only use match primers. I've never tried CCI primers but enough fellas do that I'm sure they perform to their satisfaction.
