    Does anyone use CCI 209 or 209m primers? Pros or Cons of the two? They dont seem to be a popular choice in my area.

    I changed over to them from Remington 209 and see no practical difference. The price is about same as Winchester and if that is all you can get then go for it. CCI has been making primers for along time.

    The CCI 209 and CCI 209M are completely different primers, and are not interchangeable in recipes. I use the CCI 209M in my .410 reloads since the slow .410 powders are sometimes hard to ignite. The CCI 209 is a nice mild primer comparable to (but not direct replacement for) the expensive Remington STS primer.

    I use them in STS hulls with GreenDot. They are similar but not equal to a 209A. I got the recipe for this load via email from Alliant.

    I have used CCI 209 primers when I ran out of Remington 209s. No issues with them, but have since gone to Fiocchi due to cost.

    In my opinion the CCIm is a duplicate of the Federal 209. I love them but I use both Fed and CCIm. The only thing wrong with them is they are not available. Wish I knew where to buy some

    I have found that they only seat flush in federal hulls.
    This is probably only a cosmetic thing.
    The CCI 209 seems to be as mild as the Rem. 209 and thru my reloading components dealer is the least expensive US made primer out there.

    I have been using CCI 209's for about four months as a replacement for Win.209's (Win. 209's were not available). Been using them in AA's, work just fine.

    I can only buy the CCI-209M primers. Do they still make and sell the CCI209 primers? Tim

    CCI 209 standards are still available. That could change as they are shifting production to metallic cartridges and threatened to not sell anymore primers to the consumer this year. Rumor-maybe!!

    I've used lots of the 209M's with very good results. Like an earlier poster said they seem to be very similar to the Federals.

    I called the CCI factory to find out if they were indeed the same and I was told they were not. CCI209M can be substituted for a Federal 209A but not the other way around. On a scale from 1-10 Federal being 10 CCI being 9.5. Their words not mine.

    When touring the CCI primer facility in Lewiston Idaho a few years back I was told that all shotgun primers were made in the Federal factory now. Both companys are owned by ATK. The reason for moving CCI shotgun primers to Federal was so they could increase the rifle primer production in Lewiston, who makes primers for military contracts.
