    Using Promo powder - 17 grains - for 7/8s load, lighting wad, STS hull winchester primer, stay with high end primer - shout thousands of them with no problems.

    High end primer?

    Try 20,000+ Fiocchi primers in about 1/2 1oz loads and the rest 24 gram international loads with NO problems and excellent patterns and scores.

    Don't be fooled into thinking a high end primer is the be-all and end-all for a satisfactory 7/8 oz load.

    It's easy enough to test.

    Buy 100 of the less expensive primers and try them - you will have spent all of $3.00 and answered your question.

    ffwildcat- You indicated that it is rather simple to test the lower priced primers, but you failed to tell us how to test them. Shooting shells with these primers on the line will not give us an indication of velocity and chamber pressure uniformity.
