    I`m very possibly heading for Colorado for I believe the 4th elk rifle season. Anyway, the dates are Nov. 7 - 12. So, the temp. could be above zero - below zero. Which primers do yall guys recommend between 210M and 210M magnum primers? The cartridge will be 6.5 Gibbs.
    I would very much regret using the standard if I was to pull the trigger on a nice bull or cow for that matter to only have a miss fire. I don`t know if this is even possible, yall tell me.

    thanks, Warren

    I have never had a problem with a Federal 210 primer in the smaller case like the 6.5 Gibbs. You don't need a mag primer in that size case.

    Good luck on your hunting trip.

    I have used 210M primers in loads for my .300 RUM, .300 Tomahawk and .300 Win Mag. down to temps in the upper 20's. None have ever failed to ignite, even with the dense ball powders. I say use the most accurate primer in your gun--I had velocity flucutations with the 215's and the 210M's solved the problems.
