    Is it OK to use CCI 209's in place of win 209's? I am using G-Dot in Rem hulls. Thanks Jerry

    I don't know about just using the same data but Alliants Reloading Guide lists plenty of loads for CCI primers and Green Dot Powder for Remington Hulls. I would follow the recommended data for your primers instead of playing the substitution guessing game. Just Say'n.................................

    I use different primers depending on cost.
    My Hulls, powder drop and wads all stay the same.
    CCI, Federal or Winchester 209 primers which ever is cheaper.

    I have found data for Rem primers, 209 and 209P. Which are two different primers, load data is very similar. Same goes for FED primers versus the Rem primers, data is only off tenths of a grain. I rarely have a powder drop exactly the same there for I don't see any issue subing AS LONG AS the data you find is VERY similar to the current primer you are loading.

    KEEP SHOOTING!!!

    In the loading data I have studied, there is often a big difference between Remington 209P primers (one of the coldest on the market)compared to Federal 209A primers (the hottest). Of course the results vary depending on your powder, hull and wad.

    Please be careful and use published data - including primers

    AS MENTIONED...
    "AS LONG AS the data you find is VERY similar to the current primer you are loading."

    I just hope you guys that load by substituting with whatever looks close never kill yourself or worse yet some innocent shooter on the post next to you. They make published recipes for a reason. Reloading Russian Roulette is what many enjoy i guess.

    a couple of the shotshell reloading manuals provide information that shows several thousand psi difference just by changing primers. as titan says "they make published recipes for a reason". penny wise and pound foolish to mess with this -- delta cost of primers per box is small compared to the risk you are taking. if price of primers varies from $25/thou to $35/thou the cost to load a box changes by a quarter [penny a shot]. is that worth the risk??? follow the published recipe or go to the hodgdon website and pull info down from the online data base.

    What about loads using Cheddite primers? The only recipes I have been able to find that list Cheddite primers are for using Cheddite hulls. I am using Remington hulls, Claybuster wads and Red Dot powder.
