Best "available" primer ?

What is the best primer for my 300 WM?My first shoice would be 215M's,but those are pretty much impossible to get now.Right now I have quite a few CCI large magnum primers,but didn't know if there is a better choice out there based on availability.

I've always had great success with 215m's. Before that I used rem. 9 1/2M's.

Funny you say that about finding 215M's. I was out and about this past weekend and stumbled across 7 bricks of 1000 $24.99 a thousand. As you can guess I bought them all.

As I stated in another thread, check out the newest edition of Handloader magazine. There is an extremely in-depth study of how each component, when isolated affects accuracy, with results of his tests. The tested all the major primer's in isolation and publishes his results.

Do you realy believe that in a different rifle the results will be the same?

I don't know if CCI BR-2s are available to you or not, but they shrunk my 2-300 yard groups by 1/2. A close second upon later tests for me was the RP 9.5M.

while the federal 215's are often mentioned it seems that only by trying several brands will you discover which works best with your loads in your rifle
