Primer is not accurate at all. I have loads well within specs in SAMMI standard chambers that look like I am running 10k psi over max. I have some special loads that are over book max in SAMMI min spec chambers and tight necks and they show no signs of pressure at all.

So no primers not very good indicators.

RCBS has the X die that is supposed to stop brass flow. I don't know cause I don't use them.

Gun07 so true. I can always tell the guys who hang out in gun shops and get bad information. These fellows who do not undertstand the relation of pockets, flash holes chamber to case wall friction head space etc. and decide that a flat primer idicates pressures is asking for problems.

l see this is going no were, and for you to make assumption that l got all my information hanging out in a gun shop and getting bad lnfo. leave me to wonder as to how much both of you know, seems like like you quoting from a text book of some sort, or getting you info on line.
l have competed for 3 years 1976-78-79 in Internationale Bench shooting in N.J.and PA still have some REM.40XBBRS W24X scopes and 2oz triggers,and what l learned was at the range, from people who perfected 22PPC and the 6MMPPC and other new cartridges at that time. And there names are in the record books IBRSA and to say primers means nothing makes me wonder, oh and by today's standards my target guns are $2,500+ each and l still load them the same now as l did then.
With this if this is all l,m going to learn from this web site, l will bid you all
fare well and Happy Shooting. And don't worry about the primers they don't do to much in reloading there just there to keep the power from falling out from the back of the case

There is a difference in attending matches and being a serious shooter. Bragging on how much your rifle cost? Really! If you want to discuss reloading for the Swift bring along some useful information.

Cbibb why would I rechamber a rifle to a an ancient Ackley Wildcat? All this to get extra case life? When the facts are much of the brass flow is in the resizing of the case during reloading. I will change out brass before I rechamber or rebarrel and buy custom dies. The resale of rifles in these old Wild Cats is terrible.

I totally agree about the wild cat this wasn't a suggestion just stating an option that's all I also like the keep it simple method my self. I own one wild cat a 6/284 in a 40x the barrel is shot out so Im going to either go to a 284 or a 308 just for the keep it simple cause I have 800 pieces of unsized 284 so all set for brass and 308 has countless options I know other guys that own nothing but wild cats and they go through allot to form cases.As fare as resale of wildcats your right to a degree depends on wild cat and who your around allot of bench rest shooters and p-dog hunters love wild cats right person right time sells anything kind of like left handed guns took me two years to sell.
