    Can buy these at pretty good prices. Which ones are slightly larger and you can't go back and use winchester remington etc in those cases? If anyone has experience with these and what you liked I would appreciate it. TIA.

    The Nobel Sports are larger. Am not sure about the others as they once were larger but things may have changed. Have loaded 100k of Nobel Sports without problems.

    I've measured the Cheddites and they are exactly the same size in all dimensions as Win 209 and Federal 209A.

    I've not checked Fiocchi or Nobles, but have been told by several people that they are a tad larger because they are of metric dimensions.

    Fiocci makes both sizes. I know ....because I once bought a 'sleeve' of them (5000) and there were some of the larger size mixed in that batch. Didn't realize it until reloaded the shells a second time, and some of the primers fell out!

    These two charts are from the online version of the 4th issue of Trapshooting USA, page 50. The article they came from outlined the dimensional differences of common primers. The measurements listed are an average of the measurements of several primers from different lots: <center>

    I've switched to Cheddites with good results. I shoot Promo/Red Dot and as per Alliant, I can use Rem 209 data to work up my loads. No issues going back to WW or Rem primers, but why? Cheddites work great, are quite consistent.

    The variance in size is one issue. Its the brilliance or strenght that is more important. Suggest 2 things, 1.use manual to find correct load info. 2. use a scale to insure it.

    I've loaded thousands of Fiocchi's without a hitch.You couldn't give me any Cheddites cuz their made by the french.My way of thanking them for the time they wouldn't let us use their air space during Desert Storm and for those frenchies that chose to spit at Lance Armstrong while he kicked butt during Tour DeFrance.

    I like the Cheddites and can see no difference in how they reload or their performance compared to Winchesters, Federals or Remingtons. I'll likely stay with Cheddites as long as I pay less for them.

    Given the opposition to purchasing french-made primers, it would be interesting to know where other brands - like CCI, Winchester, Federal, etc. - are maufactured.

    Given their overly high price, I would suspect they are U.S. made, though...
