    Can the 209 primers be used more or less interchangeable? I noticed a slight change in some loading data based on primers. I have also found that the Rem primers fit nicer in my 28 gauge STS's than say Win's. CCI's, Win's, Rem's, are burn rates faster, slower, hotter etc. Anyone know?

    The web is great, hate to answer my own question but there is a very interesting article to read posted here, www.armbrust.acf2.org/ Big changes can happen to your loads just deciding to by the primer that's on sale or available. Good read.

    What's the big deal about changing primers?

    Just buy what is on sale and adjust tour load accordingly! Basically, it means changing your powder bushing.

    As far as standard primers go Fed 209A are considered hot and Rem 209 are considered weak. The rest fall some where in between. HMB

    Use reliable data for the EXACT components you are using. Changing primers can sometimes have a dramatic effect on pressures. The effects are not always predictable either. "HOT" primers may sometimes decrease pressures and some "MILD" primers might increase them. It's a crap shoot.

    If you closely study enough reloading data, you'll see that Quack Shot is right.

    Nevertheless many folks substitute primers, say a Cheddite, Rio, Fiocchi, Wolf, etc., for Rem, Fed, CCI, Win. There exists much more data for the latter. You often read that the former can be used with Win209 data, which are supposedly in the middle range of brisance for shotgun primers. I confess I've done that myself, but only if the recipe is below a nominal 10,000 psi.

    Substitute at your own risk.
