If you are looking for "specifics" on brand of primer you will not find it in your manual. Small pistol = small pistol, pick one, same goes for every other size primer be it LR, LP or Magnum. Just select the correct size in any brand you wish and l load em.
Ok I was just wondering about specific brands and what will work with what uses. I know some are hotter than others. Im letting everyone know im very new to reloading and just trying to learn more before I start. Thanks everyone.

I use cci, Winchester, and Remington interchangeably with no issues from any of them. I don't use magnum primers for my 357 loads. I shoot sa and da with my revolvers and have never failed to set one off. The only reason I don't use federal is the packaging makes them a pain in the azz to neatly pour into my priming tray but the primers work just fine, I just feel like I am always pickin them up off the floor.

Same here. I use standard Remington # 1 1/2, and my 125 grain load clocks 1625 FPS from my 6 inch Ruger Security Six.

CCI are the last choice always. Federal is the most popular with Match or Compt. Handgunners. I also use the Winchester. Federals are some over sized to keep a tight fit in handloaded brass. The Magnum primer comes into play when using a gun at very low Temps. It provides a hotter spark in cold weather.

Fupuk, as with most internet forums and information sites it happens that you will get bad and even dangerous advise. The key is to have good manuals and written resources that can help you weed out the bad advice.

The above comment is what should be considered "Bad" advice. Please to not follow this.

The Remington 1 1/2 primer should not be used in the 357 Magnum. Especially when loaded to the extreme velocities listed above. Remington specifically warns against using their 1 1/2 primer in the 357 Mag. It even says so on the box. Still there are those that ignore the manufactures warnings.
It's best to stay safe and ignore those that ignore the warnings.

What is the reason that Remington does not recommend the 1 1/2 in a 357?

Same reason they warn against using the 6 1/2 SR primer in rounds like the 223/5.56, Pressure.
