    How many people use magnum primers for their BP loads?

    I started out using CCI250s for my 38/55.
    I use BR-2s for my 45/70 black powder loads!��

    Ive been having good results with Rem Std large rifle primers. Have also used federal gold medals. Find a load and test primer to see what the rifle likes and works best

    there are excellent shooters using a brand variety of large pistol, standard, and magnum primers. primers are just another variable and it doesn't much matter who's using what, we each need to see what works best for the cartridges we build. if yer just starting out, primers are about the last thing to mess with, so start off with any standard primer and work on the cartridge load itself to deliver the best consistent accuracy possible ... then trial other primers.

    I use the Federal 215 magnum primers for my full service M1873/82 replicant BP loads (70 Fffg heavily compressed) under the Lee 405HB or the Rapine 460500.

    For my reduced target loads or duplex loads I use a WLR primer.
