    Is there a web site that tells the difference between the different primers? How about a cross reference?

    Well whats going on here in mass is sometimes they have this primer sometimes that type. After looking at different load data its seems tough to match wads/powders/primers. red dot hard time finding cci209 rem tgt12 wad data? ect ect. looking at remington primers...209A 209STS? but no real infor on type? Also noticed some different preasures on load data.

    Unfortunately, there is no absolutely accurate reference for the substitution of primers. They can act very differently with different powders and loads. The best way to figure it out is to find data for the EXACT comonents you are using. Since it appears that you are fairly new to shotshell reloading, I'd recommend staying with established data and not experimenting. With all of the variables affecting pressures with listed loads, I'd be careful when substituting components. The best recourse is to obtain the exact components for the data you wish to use. I'm sure you will be able to use up whatever you have left with an appropriate load eventually.
