Preferred primers
« on: September 23, 2015, 09:27:07 PM »
Is there a preferred primer for bullseye loads?  I started reloading just as components became scarce so I have loaded with whatever I could find.  Now that you can find primers, is there one brand that performs better than the others?

I have used Winchester primers for as long as I can remember, but with the past shortages, I started trying other brands.  I have had good luck with CCI's, Tula, Federal and S&B primers.  While Wolf primers go off, I had one lot where the anvils came loose during the loading process and jammed my Star press, so I try to stay away from them.  Bottom line, with Bullseye loads, any primer will work, but my first choice is still Winchester.  Old habits die hard.
