Re: magnum primers in3006 loads

As long as you are working up a load the mag primers will not make any difference. I would not just sub a mag primer for a standard in an already worked up load. With IMR 4350 you probably can't get enough powder in the case using 200 gr bullets to be over pressure. Primers do make a difference to accuracy though. I use CCI 250 mags with IMR 4350 in my pet 25-06 deer load because it shoots bug holes with them and does not with other primers.

good load, shot the gameking 200gr. out of an '06 for a while with i4350 and a 215. That rifle also liked 165 hornady spbt's with i4350 and a 215. I shot a .300" 200 yard group with that rifle (a bdl lh) once at 200 yards with the 165 grain combo. As others have said, I'd work her up with your primer of choice.
