    I recently saw a chart that said the Winchester primers run smaller then the Remington ,so I was wondering if size would be a problem when swapping STS primers for Winchester primers( yes I'm using published loads and a scale). I'm using GC hulls with 16.5 grains of tightwad and 1 1/8 in a Fig. 8 wad. Any help is greatly appreciated. God Bless and Happy New Year!

    I've loaded thousands of Gun Clubs with Win primers. I've never had a problem.

    Same to you for the good wishes

    Remington 209P(STS) primers are shorter than Winchester 209. Loading Rem 209P(STS) in Remington hulls is no problem. If you load any thing else in Remington hulls; you MAY run into problems like the primer not seating all the way in. This is because sometimes there is some plastic that rolls over the top of the original Rem primer. The plastic stops the taller primers from seating all the way. Those that do not have any problems have their press set up to force the primer home.

    Yes, this is the chart I should have specified I meant measurement A and was wondering if it would make a difference. God Bless and Happy New Year!
