Re: Magnum primers as opposed to normal large primers

Every gun is different I have used non mag primers all the way up to the 338 lapua and in most instances got better groups and es than with mags. See what your gun likes and work up when chaAnging components

Re: Magnum primers as opposed to normal large primers

Follow richards guidance. It's good!

My experience says that in '06 sized cases and most probably smaller, CCi 200s have always shown greater accuracy that cci 250s, in my rifles.

In large case magnums, I've found, as revealed by a noted rifle smith, that Federal 215s are a bit hotter than Federal 215 GMs.

Again follow the advice given.
