My lgs got a shipment of primers in. I've only been reloading for about 2 months so I only picked up 1000. 37 bucks which isn't bad considering the last bunch I bought around here was 34 before the panic
Are you crazy? they are not the same animal in any way,shape,or form. Anyone who Jimmy-Rigs when they are handloading is just asking for it. This is why I always tell people to NEVER buy re-loads unless they know the source very well.If your reloading for small pistol primers, you can also use small rifle primers. In my area small rifle primers are easier to come by. Good luck to all to find what y'all need.
Small rifle primers are the same as small pistol magnum primers. You can sub. small rifle primers and small pistol mag. primers for small pistol primers, BUT you must start at low end and work back up and watch for pressure signs. You shouldn't even change primer brands without starting over. The small pistol mag. primers and the small rifle primers have a stronger cup and they take more firing pin or striker force to detonate. As long as you have enough firing pin/striker force to fire them reliably you can use them. There are people that moved to small rifle during the 08/09 panic and they NEVER moved back.If your reloading for small pistol primers, you can also use small rifle primers.
