Re: Can primers reduce E.S.?

Thanks for the advice kennibear
I will keep this in mind as i start load development for a new round in a few months. I guess i never understood the variables that affect powder ignition.

Im having trouble finding match grade primers in town as of late but im gonna try to gather an assortment for my new wonder load and try to get it developed proper.

BountyHunter,

I know you have useful knowledge but...

Why is it that you never miss a chance to blag off on technology?

Tools are tools and it's not the fault of the tool if the user are inept.

Did you have a failed experience with QuickLoad or some other tool and now feel it's your duty to disparage it at every opportunity?

As far as I'm concerned it makes you look like a whiner.

In fact you can affect this better/worse per primer used with striking adjustments.
This I believe is an unknown that makes best primer selection an abstract.
Well said about "best" primers being abstract. With one gun using an identical powder charge and bullets CCIs may work best, in another gun Win primers may work best. I usually just pick one primer and work the load using it. Only in benchrest guns do I ever do any testing by swapping primers.

Do you work back up to your load with each new primer?
