    With a safe pressure (documented or published) 7/8 or 1 oz. load are Wolf or Cheddite primers difficult to seat in Rem STS hulls? I will follow safe loading, but don't want to buy a bunch of Wolf or Cheddite primers if they are difficult to seat in the STS hulls I use. Comments, please. Best Regards, Ed

    Not a problem at all.

    You may not be able to use those shells with Rem or wins anymore but running a Rio, Fioccchi, Wolf, etc.... import primer is a piece of cake.

    Go for it.

    Jeff, sounds like the primers you mentioned...Rio, Fiocchi, Wolf, etc. will enlarge the primer pockets and Rem or Win primers will be loose if you try to go back to them. Did I understand this right? Thanks for your quick reply. Best Regards, Ed

    Fiocchi, Cheddite, Winchesters, Remingtons, CCI, Federals, etc, are all pretty much the same size, diameter wize. The taper is what's different. The part that will enter the hull first is a little more of a sharp shoulder on some, like the Fiocchi. The Rio G600 and the Nobel Sport are slightly oversize, as are a few of the old Cheddites made for the non-us markets. If you are loading on a MEC press, you just need to add a little spring tension by adjusting the powder drop tube downward a little bit. That will give you a little more pressure when seating the primers. Thw Wolf primers are still an unknown to me, since I have not measured any. They appear to be a standard size and the previous PMC brand was also.
