Re: primer choice for 30-06

I've never noticed any advantage in the BRs over the regular primers, but all of my guns except one are 1.25" or so sporters except my Sendero. John Barnsness did a test awhile back and said that the CCI 200s were the most consistent in pressure. Those are what I've alwasys prefered and used. I buy them 1000 at a time. capt david

Re: primer choice for 30-06

Top competitive shooters tend to stay away from CCI primers. And the milder ones tend to shoot the most accurate; even in magnum cartridges.

The Russian ones sold by PMC won't deteriorate over time like the others and become non-uniform in their ignition properites. And they are probably the most uniform semi-mild primers made today.

Otherwise, pick one you feel comfortable with, but you really don't need the magnum ones.
