Kind of funny that you bring up the Rem. 6 1/2's Lon. Back last year they were my "go to" primers for several of my small PISTOL loads.
Around here the small pistol primer supplies had dried up/priced out of this world also. I'm too damn cheap to pay $40-45 per K for primers! My local gun club got a shipment in of Rem. 6 1/2's, and I tried a K on .38/.357/9MM, with good success. Bought 1K at $27.00 and tried them-went back and bought 5K more, and still use them in some of my heavier pistol loads. I did back down my powder charge a hair, and all of my handguns still have strong springs to light off the harder primer cupl
I think the Rem.6 1/2's are like using a Small Pistol Mag. primer in most loads. All worked well for me then==AND== now, I need to get over to Powder Valley and get some of those $18.00K Wolf primers...
