    I see the thread on RIO shells is getting varied opinions but how about RIO primers. I use Promo in AA hulls for 1 oz. loads, usually with Win. 209 or Fiocchi primers but have been having trouble obtaining either one. The local shop has a decent supply of RIO's but I can find no reloading data for the components I'm using in Alliant's website & I'm reluctant to experiment. Anyone used these primers successfully in a 1 oz. load? Thanks in advance, John

    They are larger. Normally when you go to them you have to stay with them until the hull is worn out.

    Going back to a primer you can't get is a moot point. Hulls don't last forever.

    You might drop a bushing or 1/2 gr if you are worried about it. Unless you are pushing the envelope, no problem.

    I buy these 100,000 at a time. Never one failure to fire, hot or cold weather.

    Great primer, use it all the time with Promo. 17.5 to 18.5 grains will make you a fast low recoil load. I shot nearly 60,000 of them in the last couple of years with no problems.
