so ive been trying to get primers for over a year now, just curious what brand other people have good luck with or suggerst...the calibers i have are .300 weatherby mag, .325 wsm, .308 win, 270 win, and 280 rem
Federal or CCI. In a standard large rifle I like the CCI BR-2, these are available now, at least off and on from a few suppliers. For the Mag rifles, I've been using Fed 215 and Fed 215GM. Both work good.
Wolf primers are getting good reviews, and are easily available from Powder Valley, Brunos, etc. I started loading them in 6mmBR last fall, but don't know whether they are better than CCI BR2's just yet.
