    Cheddite primers Ive been reading about.

    Are the most recent batches better than the old?

    thanks

    I have used cheddite primers in the past with only 1 problem shooting an 1100 in a winter league hit the carrier tab bolt started to close round went off,not a mark on the primer. thank the lord I had the gun pointed in a safe direction.I beleive that the primer had a loose anvil. like i said there was not a mark on the primer from the firing pin.Otherwise I have shot 30,000 with out a problem,

    The primers go "BANG". Your gun may not like them, though, and regularly punch holes in the primer cups. You will then either become friendly with your local gunsmith or become a practiced hand at buying and replacing the firing pins you'll wreck as a result. My XTs don't like'em at all!

    been using an average 3 sleaves a year for atleast 8 years. Have never had a misfire. Did punch the odd hole through one but it was specific to one gun of low quality; never punched through with my 682/DT10. Hodgson powders do give recipes for Cheddites. None for Alliant but I emailed them and got the info I needed. Challenger ammo for Canada is Cheddite components.

    Wil,

    It depends on the gun you are using them in. What are you shooting?

    Thanks,

    no good for me in multiple K80's and M12's! About 5 % perfs- they weld firing pins in my guns.They don't save me money, they cost me money!

    Been using them for a few years. I've never had a FTF with them, but my daughter's XT and my son's BT-99 will occasionally (~2 per 100) puncture through.

    About 15% punctured in my K-80. Krieghoff gunsmith told me they had several damaged firing pins that they had to replace.

    unknown, I have a Citori that punched through a Cheddite once, bottom barrel. It never punched through Win primers. Only fired a few Cheddites in it and assume it would be a frequent occurrence. Were you able to stop it from happening or is it a design problem? My BT has never punched through a primer.

    When the primer cap is pierced, like as blackfoot and paul7177 mentioned above, the primer acts like a mini-blowtorch and destroys K-80 firing pins quickly. So Cheddite primers are not worth the money saved to K-80 guys, and you can verify this with KI.

    Thanks,

    So,then they tend to have softer cup metal than say a winchester 209?

    Have never pierced one. I also shoot a K80 and slso shoot 1000's of targets a year. Nome of my other guns, alfie, beretta, M12 have pierced any either. So maybe you ought to have you gun looked at.

    Again the experts have spoken.
