    Kirby Allen has posted in the past that he prefers Federal 215 primers for the slow-burn-rate ball powders. And he prefers the non-Match 215 primers over the Match grade 215s.

    rbaker,

    Welcome aboard.

    Ditto what phorwath said. I, following Kirby's post, put it to the test with 101gr US 869. He was correct. He uses WC872 by the bucket.......

    BTW, any Woof's up your way. We still have 5 of the alotted 5 to get down here.:rolleyes:

    Whatcha shootin?
