Re: Question about primers for Remimgton 7400

The military does use thicker cup primers and they are Mag primers to set off ball powder and for use in cold weather. The 7400 does not have a free floating firing pin so you are OK with the CCI 200. Don't try to load max loads for it. Stick with middle of the road loads.

Re: Question about primers for Remimgton 7400

My late Father Inlaw's 7400 would jam if I used brass that had been used before, the brass would be wider by just a few .000. or the neck would be just a bit longer,,this was before I
payed attention to what I was doing. I found the semiauto was real touchy on the recipe.
Please make sure the entire cartridge can fully cycle through the chamber without jamming with a live round. It did on this end. I was also warned by some of the guys I shoot with who use semi-autos to never load for semi-auto as you would do for a bolt the action. semi-autos cant handle the same load, just don't load them hot.
