    Hello,
    My parents neighbor gave me 1K of these primers that he found while cleaning his garage. What can these be substituted for??? I was also gifted about eight pounds of Red Dot in a cardboard drum, around 1K R12L wads, two bags of #8 shot, and a bunch of RXP hulls. He says he hasn't shot in almost thirty years. I guess it pays to help him put in and take out his dock and boat lift each year... Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Leon

    Ask him what his favorite load was using those components. HMB

    Remington 97* primers work very well with old Red Dot. I loaded and shot tens of thousands of the following load- RXP hull, Rem 97* primer 18.5 gr Red Dot, RXP wad, 1 1/8oz shot.

    the open primers dont work well with the finer powders- solo 1000 is pretty all over the wall anyway-- I wouldnt use them with that powder

    trade them maybe or use them with the larger flaked powder

    Memory is a fleeting thing, but I believe the Rem 97s are a smaller primer than the current 209. The old RXP hull should work with them, but that's about it.

    Pass103- Those 97-4s have open flash-holes?
