SR vs SRM Primers

Back when you couldn't find any components for reloading I happened upon some CCI small rifle primers. I bought 2 boxes (2000 primers) not realising until I got home they were SR magnum ones (was just in shock to actually find some lol). I am reloading for a 223 AR, would I be ok with these or should I try getting the regular SR ones now? I shot decent groups with the SRM ones with 75gr Hornady BTHP Match ones, but am going to try 70 and 75gr VLD's and wondering if I should change primers while I'm at it.
