Cant find much loading data for cheddite primers. Anyone know how they stack up power wise with federal, winchester and remington primers?

For Alliant powders you could contact Ben Ammonette in Cust. Service at Alliant. I have his email address as Ben.Amonette@ATK.COM He has always been very helpful and knows a ton of stuff about reloading Alliant Powders. I use Red Dot and Cheddite primers and am completely happy with the combination. Plus I sure like the $40-60 saving per 5000 primers vs the high priced guys.

I load Cheddite primers, Remington Hull, Down Range Wad, 17.0 grains of clays, with 1 oz. of #8's and had them ballistic tested by Down Range. They performed almost identical the the Winchester's that I had tested alongside them.

I love the savings!!

You pay less and they're a good primer, but it's foreign made. I'll pay the extra money to keep the words "Made in the USA" on my Winchesters.

They are not equivalent to any primer, so you should not be swapping components without data to support it. That said, if you start out with data having a low enough pressure, you can likely substitute the Cheddite primer for Winchesters, CCI209M, or Federal 209A. Starting with a lower pressure load should give you enough headroom for error. I would strongly recommend staying away from higher pressure loads (over 9000 - 9500 PSI or so) without having data for the exact components you are using.

Hodgdon has quite a bit of data for them.

I've used the WIN209 data for the Alliant powders, RD, CD & GD, as a starting point and chronographed the loads to get the desired velocity. As long as you are not trying to push the envelope, I think you will be fine. If the WIN209 data is up against the 11K psi ceiling, I'd go with the actual primer specified.

I talked to Ben about Cheddite primers and said they are a direct substitute for Winchester. He also said use Red Dot specs for Promo...

While many shooters enjoy useing these primers, some have had problems with the firing pin puncturing the primer cover and get the end of their firing pins burned. After this happens several times the fireing pins have to be replaced. This can cost you more in the long run. I suggest trying a couple hundred of these primers first before buy them in bulk. From what I've seen on this website there seems to be no ryme or reason for this. Some K guns have problems while others don't, same for brownings, beretta's. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

I called Alliant tech support several months ago. They said to load them like Winchester 209's. I chronographed and they are the same velocity as Winchester 209's.

Graf's has dropped the price of WW 209's almost to the price of Cheddites.

Graf's is $124.99 for Cheddite and $131.99 for both Winchester and Federal. Not much of a difference.

Be careful with Cheddite primers. They tend to punch through and burn firing pins on some guns. Sometimes the cost savings will not be worth it!

I've loaded Cheddites exclusively for some time, and they do punch through primers occasionally in my Browning. With the substantial savings here locally over Win 209's, I have stocked a couple of extra lower firing pins. The Win's would sometimes fail to light off, while the Cheddites would always go bang. I'm now shooting a CG Summit Trap, and have had no failures and no pierced primers. I had switched from the Cheddites for Wins 209's at one time, and didn't notice any size difference issues. Also, the Win's, seemed to hang up on the Pacific/Hornady primer tray, while the Cheddites never did. The flash hole in the Cheddites are sealed against the elements, and when the shells get soaked during a rainy shoot, the shells still go bang. That's a plus for me.
