cci are the gold standard primer in my book. if you choose to use br primers just make sure its pointed in a safe direction on loading. in floating firing pin guns you should stick with harder primers. its not going to go boom everytime the bolt closes, you just run a much higher risk of slam fire. ive seen it happen to some folks using factory 308 ammo in m1a before.
oh one other thing, benchrest primers tend to be a little thinner and with the very energetic firing mechanisms of military style semi-autos and you run a real risk of pierced primers. if you get a pierced primer all that hot gass jets into the bolt area and can result in damage to your bolt assembly.
i dont use br primers in any of my guns since i dont have reduced power hammer springs in any gun i own. i dont think they are necessary and can be dangerous in firearms not designed to utilize them.
i know magtech uses very thin primers and i get pierced primers in their 44mag pistol ammo in my ruger 44 carbine.
just my opinion
