    Re: noble sport primers. Does anyone know if the
    Primers are steel or brass? I heard they are steel
    And they affect the bushings in my 3200.

    Steel. A magnet will pick them up.

    All primers have a steel anvil so a magnet will pick them all up. The best way to check is to scratch them with your pocket knife or better yet just take one apart & check all 3 pieces with your magnet then you will know for certain. Ross Puls

    All shotgun primers are steel. I keep a magnetized scredriver by my loader for whan I drop one, and I haven't found one I couldn't pick up.

    A qualifier to Halfmile's post. All shotshell primers have some steel in them.
    Nobel Sports, Cheddites and some others are all steel. WW209, Rem209 and Fed209 are all steel except the cap which is brass.

    All shotshell primers have steel content. Most pistol primers are not magnetic, not steel. Haven't loaded any rifle.
