    I have a box of N0. 57 kleanbore primers, for shot gun shells, from Remington. Any ideas what gauge they are for? They fall out of 12 gauge hulls. Thanks, Al

    the old remingtons used them. Even the target loads. I don't know where they could be used now. I have a few small boxes too.

    I have an Ideal reloading manual from 1947 that lists the 57 primer as a battery cup primer which supercedes the Rem 53 primer. I guess you will have to find some old Remington hulls if you want to use them. HMB
