    I ordered Cheddite primers and received American Target Primers. These primers are made in France. Come in the same type of package as Cheddites, except they say American Target. The primers are all nickle rather than the copper/nickle Cheddite uses.

    Anyone ever heard of these primers?

    Humm is it possible that Cheddite addressed the size issue between the metric and american 209 primers and made the American Target "standard 209" size.

    I have started using them (approx 1000) and I have had no issues. They are in the same package as the cheddite just a different color and a few bucks less. I bought 5,000 the other day for $116 vs $140 for winchester.

    American Target is Steve Crow's (Crow shooting Supply) private label. He told me personally 2 weeks ago they are Cheddites.

    The above poster is correct. I sell them and they are Crow Shooting Supply's private label (cheddite) primers. None of my customers have had any complaints with them.
