    I started shooting my 25-06 yesterday.
    I finally arrived with 100gr Barnes TTSX bullets
    with 56gr of RL-19. with Remington LR primers.
    3 shots a Canadian $2 coin will cover. I wish I had a chrony. My rifle is a Rem 700 24" barrel.
    Is there any difference in using magnum primers and
    standard? All I know is CCI primers are harder.
    Over the years I have heard it said that when it's real
    cold up here in Alberta one should use magnum primers.
    What's everyones opinions of different makes & types of
    primers?

    Happy Hunting, Gerry
