    My preference but Remington primers are the last I would use. You may even consider Re25 with the 180 in mind. A mag primer would be a good choice but not really necessary unless you hunt in very cold temps.

    i've got 2 guns that shoot one hole with remington primers so i'll stick with them. at what point, grain wise, do i need to step up to a magnum primer?
