Primer question



  • For small rifle primers, all that I have available are CCI 41 (magnum small rifle) and Winchester SR. I have plenty of the CCIs, as all I loaded for in .223/5.56 was ARs until recently.
    Basically the only choice of primers available here are whatever the shops have on hand, and that has been consistently Winchester.
    My question is, are the CCI 41s consistent enough for precision loads? Would they be better served using a ball powder? I will be loading for bullets in the 52-60 grain range.



  • I've not used 41's... I've only used 450's. Not sure how they compare.

    According to CCI the primer formula is the same as the 450, the anvil on the 41 seats in further to help alleviate slam fires.
    Have you found the 450s to be a consistent for precision loads?

    Extremely so. CCI-450 is a staple primer for guys shooting 6BR in competition.



  • @orkan That's terrific, Thanks.
