    I just ran out of Federal 210 large rifle primers. These were packaged in a red box with a dark blue edge on one side. I can't find those, but I can find the light blue boxed 210s, but they say Champion. Has Federal just changed packaging? Or, are the Champion primers not the same as my 210s in a red package? I also can't find Federal large rifle benchrest primers either. Any help would be appreciated!

    If my memory serves me right Federal replaced their standard primers (which is what you had) with the Champion primers. They also have their Gold Medal primers which are their match primers. As always if you are changing to either of these primers work up your load again.
