Re: Desperate times..anyone ever use large pistol primers in rifle loads?

ive done it many times with large rifle and pistol. But will admit only in the 3030s 35 rems 444 and 4570. In some cases i found i got even better accuracy with those cases and pistol primers. Granted they arent high pressure rounds though. Ill add too that i never once had a misfire doing it or a light primer hit. If i had to give advice id say to stay away from at least fed pistol primers if you do as they are real soft. Ive loaded piles of 223 using cci small pistol mags. Back in the last shortage i found two cases of them and i too found out from cci themselves that there the same as a standard small rifle.
