    What characteristics do American Target Primers, Type 209, have for reloading. Are they comparable to Winchesters?

    Yes, They are actually just silver colored Cheddites.
    We have shot many thousands of them until they were discontinued by Crow shooting supplies who marketed them.
    The last ones that we bought were only $18.50 per 1000.

    Yes acorange is correct. They are the same as Cheddites. Imported for Crow. The story I was told was another distributor had an exclusive on Cheddites so Crow worked out a deal to package them under a different name. They also had the American Target line of shotshells but when Crow and Brownells merged or whatever they did, they cut out that line.

    And the AT shotshells were a great inexpensive load that I miss.
