    My Browning XTs punch holes in them with the resulting burning and pitting and replacing of the firing pins. I spend more replacing firing pins than I save buying Cheddites instead of real primers.

    Old unknown must have a turbo charged machine as I have shot many sleeves through Seitzs and Ljutics but of course they are faulty. Certainly never exploded any firing pins! Probably the best buy on the market now with Brenner and they do not oversize your good hulls like many of the others! I use WW data and they are great primers! Too bad the Frogs make em!

    Of my several shotguns, only the bottom barrel of my cynergy pierces.

    I've shot at least 15,000 of them with absolutely no misfires. They seem to be very consistent and I have loaded Remington or Winchester primers after using cheddites and had no problems. If they are being pierced by firing pins then I've never seen it happen. If you decide you don't want them then I'd be more than happy to take them off your hands.

    Have always heard they are harder and some people get a pierced primer once in a great while. As for me I have shot over 50,000 of them and never had one. Guess it depends on your gun!

    I have been using them for about 5 years at least, which means I have shot over 75,000 and have had 2-3 failures, which is still less than I have had using Winchesters 10 years before that.

    They work well in all my guns.

    The only problem I have had on rare occasion is the less than flush setting in Remington once fired hulls, but the 3 additional loadings per hull go okay.

    I load them per Winchester recipes.

    I've fired many thousands of them in a half dozen different guns over the years. Not only have I *never* had a dud, I've also *never* had a pierced primer.

    Luckily, I've never been flush enough to own one of those expensive gun brands that seem to be the only ones with the piercing issue.

    I should also add that I had to adjust my priming station to get them to sit flush compared to my Winchester primers. I also get maybe 2-3 per 1000 that get jammed in my mec9000 primer feed. For some reason they are able to get wedged just right in the primer tray before the tube and I have to take the tray apart to get it out.

    I also load w209s for my one browning that pierces them. I've never had a fit issue in hulls going between the primers. This gun consistently pierces 1 in 25. I probably pierced 100 or so and the firing pin is ok. I probably have close to 30,000 rounds through the gun. 25k of them are through the top though.

    Also never had a misfire.

    Has anyone tried any of the American target primers? They are cheddites too but I've noticed that they seem just a smidge lighter, or it could be my imagination.

    I have used Cheddites for years and have never had a ftf with them and never had a puncture in any of the guns I've used. I found a deal on 20,000 CCI primers and wished they were Cheddites. May have to change loads on all four gauges due to different pressures. The last Cheddites I bought were $108.00 for five thousand but I found the CCI at a yard sale and got them for $225.00. I was willing to try them at that price. Jackie B.

    Couldn't find anything wrong with them. Seemed like it made the load a little hotter than a Win209, but that could be my imagination. I'd buy 'em again. Good luck.

    Ive used cheddites for years, I shoot a TMX have never had any trouble with with the exception of three misfires out of about 45000 reloads and thats a conservative estimate of reloads.

    I bought a sleeve of them several years ago because of the cheap price. I loaded 200 shells with them and gave the other 4800 away and will never try them again. I tried them using two different presses with both STS and AA hulls and they didn't seat worth a darn in either type of hull with either press.. Never had any problem with Remington, Winchester or Federal primers with either press or any hulls. So I wouldn't try them if they were $10 a sleeve. I know some say they have had good luck with them. I am glad for them but I won't try them again.

    Isn't it amazing that most of us love them and have no problems and others can't even seat them in a Win or STS hull?! Jesus, you guys are scaring the be-Jesus out of me! Tom Rhoads

    I'm in Tom Rhoads camp here!! I've had one hard Cheddite fail to fire in several years of loading with them!
