Cci 250 mag primers

Was wondering what all calibers I can use them for. I have a few of them and reloaded my 7mag and 300wm with and was wondering if I could use them on anything else 6.5x284, 270w, 243w, etc ?

    You can use them for any case that needs a large rifle primer. You just need to start low with the powder and work your way up watching for pressure signs. About all ball powders recommend using Mag primers.

Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
