    I've loaded and shot thousnads of them. They work fine. Only drawback is that they are bit larger than some other primers, so once I start loading Fiocchis in a hull, they get Fiocchis until I throw them out. Mark

    Some people like'em, some people don't.

    Some guns punch holes in them and wreck firing pins, some guns don't.

    Those who like'em swear BY them; those who don't swear AT them.

    Most of my guns punch'em so I'm with the AT people.

    They are hard...the primer cup material is tougher to dent than most, especially if your firing pin spring has seen a lot of seasons.

    Have been using them for years with excellent results. Yes the are larger diameter. I use them as replacement for Winchester primers. Have never pierced one with many diff guns.

    love them

    Not much larger but different profile

    I can switch back to Win and I can't poke them out of the case by hand

    Not the case with Nobel Sports and I had awful performance with them in the cold

    The "luddites" work well so far

    Down about 20,000 of them. Slightly hotter, slightly bigger, slightly harder. Been working great for me.

    40,000 and only one FTF. Never had a piercing problem. A little harder to seat on the first reload. My experiences have been good.

    Very similar to the old Alcan 220. Premium primer.

    Buy a couple hundred to try before you buy a case. Some guns like them, some don't.

    Have been using them in AA, Rem STS & Nitro hulls, in K80, DT10, and BT99 without any issues. 20,000+ rounds.
