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


I've also had problems with CCI primers not firing

    Yes dave the cci's were 15 to 20 fps faster but the accuracy was not as good as with the fgmm. The cci's shot a little over an inch at 200 and the fgmm were right at .75. This weekend i am going to try 93.5 and 94 gr of 1000 with both types of primers again and see how the accuracy goes.

    If they are good enough for Shawn they are good enough for me. CCI 250. Never looked back !
