That's a good reason!I used to use Rem Primers, my choice to switch had nothing to to with any problems, but rather an economic one. 1,000ct bricks of CCI for $30 or 100ct single packs for $5.50 each, nobody sells Rem primers by the brick around here. CCIs perform just as good, zero issues to date.
What are your needs? I shoot a lot of cast bullets in my handguns. I have no need to pay $.19 per bullet for plinking or punching paper informally. If you are building precision rifle loads for the big match, that's another issue.Just started reloading. Are there certain brands of any components that are much better than others? How about any brands to avoid?
The "kill" area on a deer is approx. 6 inches in dia. Most folks shoot no more than 300 yards. A load that produces 2 MOA is perfectly adequateI have never used a bullet with a poor reputatuon on game, so I have never had dissapointing results, but I have tried some that did not give me the accuracy I was looking for, idealy I like loads that shoot 3/4" or better for huning, Sierra Game Kings have given me that much more so then any other bullet, I HIGHLY recommend these to any new handloader. Hornady SSTs shoot really well in my rifles that like tipped bullets, but not all rifles like them.
