ooopppppsssss wrong primer

Hello, hope all is going great with everyone.

I enjoy competitive shoots. Today as I was cleaning and preparing my cases, I accidentally put in my 243 win lapua case with federal large rifle magnum match primers instead of federal large match rifle primers...

Can I still shoot these ??
Has anyone seriously screwed up like me ??

    If you're shooting anywhere near a warm load with a regular 210 LR primers....I sure wouldn't even attempt to try it with 215 LRM primers.

    Fed 215 LRM's are the hottest primers on the market, if I remember correctly. That could be bad.

    I don't know if 2gr of powder is enough...

    I'd wait for some other to chime in.

    Personally, I'd dump them and pop the primers out and start over with the right primers.

    Hey guys, not to hijack this thread but I am new to reloading and was wondering how you get the hot primer out of the case. Can you just put the case in the press and remove it ? will the primer set off ?

    Yes you can, I've done it and would guess many here have also done it. Just to be safe, wear eye and hearing protection
