Well, a 7400 isn't going to drive tacks but it won't be because of the primers. Use anything that says "Large Rifle."

Ah. You thinking about it being an autoloader? No, that's not an issue.

In fact the military uses the same primers we and factory ammo use, they just crimp 'em in for possible use in full auto weapons.

I was under the impression the Military used primers with a thicker cup. Like the CCI #34 or 44. Beacuase weapons systems like the M4, M14, M1Garand have a floating firing pin that slams the primer when the round is locked into battery. The crimp is for belt fed weapons.

I dont think the 7400 has a floating firing pin it would make no sence in a hunting rifle.

"The crimp is for belt fed weapons."

Belt fed weapons are full auto.

"Impressions" may or may not be true, depending on what the purchaser wants. Military purchasers are notoriously fickle, what they want this year is often different from what they wanted last year.

All of this is beside the point for what the OP wanted and needed to know.
