Re: wolf primers

I read somewhere that right after they hit the market that David G Tubbs went out and bought like 50,000 of them, If David is using them they can't be that bad.

    Wow, must be a seating problems, they ARE somewhat larger in OD and harder to seat to full depth. I've used about 11,000 of 'em so far and no problems. very uniform and lowered es on .223 and 22-250.

    TnShooter,

    You've got something else going on there, that's not the primers

    It's definitely 100% the primers. federal primers work just fine with the same everything, only difference is the primer. These primers are stored in the same place as all my other primers, in the exact same conditions.

    I'd be interested to know what the seating depth is on the Wolf and your others.

    Kevin I would be glad to give you a box of 100 to try if you are close to tennessee so you can see first hand.
    The primers were both seated on a rcbs press. They where seated till you can feel the primers touch snugly. This it the first problem I have experienced with bad primers. I emailed wolf and they said they no longer guaranteed there primers due to the large amounts of complaints they had form people. The said they felt these were complaints people trying to take advantage of them.

    Anyone that doesn't believe me and lives close to tennessee I would be glad to give you a box of 100 of these primers to try.
