    I was given about 1600 cheddite primers. Where can I get load data? Will have I have any trouble with them in a KX5? I see lots of mixed reviews about them.

    Thanks
    Dave

    Use them the same way you would use a Winchester 209.

    You will be fine. I have shot 1000's of them and I only ran a cross on bad box of them. Plus with the way times are not being able to find primers I wouldn't go giving them away I would use them up.

    You can find a little bit of data on them hodgdon's website.

    Ben from Alliant told me to use Rem209 recipes.

    I have reloaded over 30,000 cheddite primers and I have NEVER had a failure because of the primer.

    I didn't have any trouble in my KS5 but my K80 punctures them.

    Never had any trouble with misfires etc.

    The problem is not with AA's performance, it is their cost and availability. Switched to Chedites years ago and no problems. Aliant back then told me to load to AA recipes. Fred

    I started using Cheddite's last year and have shot aprox. 10,000 between me and my son. No problems in Browning shotguns.

    DO NOT LOAD CHEDDITE PRIMERS! They should be discarded in a safe manner. Send them to me and I will find the best way to dispose of them.

    Use the same data as a WW209. To me they seem to be a tiny bit hotter (felt recoil), but I don't load up to the ragged edge anyway. Good luck.

    Between my sons and I we have used 80,000. Yes we do have a problem- my distributer is out. These have been shot with a Kolar, K80 , 1100 and a Beretta. No problems and won't be shooting any other primer. We switched when Remington became expensive several years ago. Mike

    It amazes me that the French can make a good inexpensive primer like the Cheddite with the same massive regulations and taxes we have, plus international shipping costs, but the American companies can't do likewise. Perhaps, the French are more willing to accept a little less profit than the American companies to gain some market share.

    I always heard the reason they were cheaper than American primers is that France subsidizes the company to keep them competitive.

    This is one time I could care less about origion of manufacture. They are a great product for the money.Mike Graff was selling American Select at the Grand last year for less than Cheddites. He stated they were made by the same company. I bought four sleeves and have shot them all. Worked great and used 209 load data. I hope he has more this year. Jake
