Re: 338 Win Mag

I didn't worry about the primers in mine. Just start out low and work up in powder charge.

I think but don't know for sure that 215s and GM are the same just tighter QC or something.

Get some RL-22 and 250 grainers and put some thump in that ol' girl. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Yes you can, their are one of the same. The 215's are very good primers for the big cases.

I use only the Federal 210 M (match) & Federal 215's.
