7mm Rem. Mag.....what primer?

I have seen on here that some people don't use magnum primers for the 7mm RM. Is this pretty typical? Would LR primers work better for RL22, H1000, and Retumbo? I have Federal LR Match and Federal LR primers. As far as Mag primers I have CCI 250, and Winchester Magnum Rifle. What should I go with? Also, what is the difference between the LR and LR Match primers? Any info would be a great help.

    There is a List of all the primers with there relitave heat somewhere on this site.with the Fed
    215 being the hottest.

    With that said I find that cases that have a powder capacity of 65 to 70 grains seem to get
    better SD with a cooler primer as long as you are not using a slow burning powder (Like
    H50 BMG and H 869).

    My best 1000 yard load for the 7mm rem mag was H 4831 and a Remington 9 1/2 mag primer
    and 168grain SMKs (There are 3 or 4 other primers that are hotter).

    When I tried the 215s it bumped the velocity up but the SDs also went up (SDs were 9 with
    the 9 1/2s and it went to over 30 with the fed 210s)

    The cases with a capacity of over 100 like the 215s and the 215ms(A little cooler than the
    215s).

    Some powders are harder to ignite and some experimenting may be nessary.

    If accuracy is of the most importance i'd go for CCI BR-2's and RE22 but the CCI 250's will probably do ok, like I mentioned in another thread the 250's are all but identical to 210M's.

    I use cci 250 primers. They work well With Imr7828 in my gun. But to each his own they my not work well for what you may work up.

    just depends on the load, i gained 60fps over a magnum primer with a winchester non mag but that is with fairly fast powder like rl-15, using rl-22 it might be different just have to chrono and see what shoots best
