    All my loads in my 25-06 get 215’s, it’s the only primer that tightens groups in my rifle.
    My 338-06 gets 215’s when using 760 powder and shoots clover leafs with it.
    I often use magnum primers in ‘standard’ cartridges all the time if it changes groups.

    Cheers.

    It shoots very well, not that fast due to it being so light. Too light in my opinion. The Cooper model 92 in 280AI should be a good choice for you.
