    The primer doesn't look like a Rem 209. I want to reload them and would to use
    the same primer. Thanks

    A lot of the less than premium Remington shells are fitted with Cheddite primers. I find this to be true in the 12 and 20 ga gunclubs/sportsman shells.

    You can reload them using any standard size primer with no problems.

    Its an OEM primer not available to the public. Any primer will work, just match the rest of the recipe to it (I use CCI in the 12ga 20ga and 28ga just b/c thats all that was available 3 years ago and i've just stuck with it, and i use winchester in the .410).

    Remington seems to be using at least 4 different primers. Their STS and field primer, the Cheddite, and the Fed 209A.

    This says volumes about the Cheddite. The rest of the world knows it is good enough for factory ammo.

    Using the Fed 209Afterburner in field ammo is a smart move.

    They are just a more expensive primer. The Cheddite is hard to beat.

    When you can buy from another manufacturer for less than you can make it yourself. That sayin something.

    I say you need a new gun ... if your gun wont shoot factory ammo than you got ripped off.

    Nitro and STS use the Remington STS 209, same as you can buy.

    Too damn expensive, too. I'm hoarding mine.
