    CCI 250 is what I use.

    Here is a link to some load information from Shawn C:

    Right now you can only load what you have access to, and for me that's Remington Magnum.

    I shy away from CCI's because I have had a high percentage of them NOT fire. I have probably used around five hundred CCI's from several lots and had problems with nearly every lot. I have used over 10,000 Federal GMM with 0 problems from -20 degrees to 90 above.

    I cannot speak for CCI's current quality as I have not used them in nearly 10 years.

    I use the CCI's. They've worked for me so I had no reason to switch.

    I"ve used quite a few CCI's within the last 10 years, from small rifle through magnum rifle and never had a problem.

    Same here....I've never had an issue with CCI primers. Michael, maybe you should give them a try again. I know you said you had bad primers from various lots, but were they all around the same year? Maybe a bad year?
