    your changing from a magnum primer down to a regular primer, not familiar enough with hs-6 to predict what the load will do.

    I’ve loaded close to 1/2 million shotgun shells over the last 35 years . Granted most were for clay targets . But I’ve loaded around a two thousand or so I’d say that were buck or slugs . I use 209’s be it WIN , CCI or REM interchangeably with no adverse affects . Not to say that’ll work for you but that’s what I’ve done over the years . As to the CCI 209M I have some of them as well , but to be honest they were purchased to be used in my Knight Disc Rifle muzzleloaders , but if I was short on regular 209’s and needed to load something quick I used the 209M’s . Another factor none of my slug/buck loads are balls to the wall hot .

    You are treading on thin ice here, sir!

    OP - In the case of these loads, subbing regular primers for magnum primers will probably have no adverse effects. With slower burning powders such as HS-6 you will notice unburned powder granules left in your barrel resulting in poor ballistic performance. OTOH, subbing mags for regulars may drive pressures dangerously high depending on the load.
