.338 Edge Primers

Primers are as rare as rocking horse **** here in New Zealand at the moment. It has something to do with them all going to US military (or so I was told)

I have found a shop that stocks both the Fed 215 Match and the CCI250 but in limited numbers

My Edge should be ready in 6 months but I want to get the components while I can.

What would be the best primer to use? what would the difference be?

Thanks again, your help is appreciated as usual (just found a source for the trusty H1000 as well!!)

Rgds, Steve

Re: .338 Edge Primers

According to Shawn's article on the development of the Edge, he has found the CCI250's to be the best with H-1000. I have only used the CCI-250's and have had terrific success (low ES's and great accuracy).

Re: .338 Edge Primers

Can I tell you when I have picked up mine!!

He limits you to 100 but if you buy projectiles he will sell you the corresponding number of primers.

a bit different but its the only reason he has any left.

Cheers, Steve
