I had the belief that if I used Fiocci primers that is all I would be able to use in my reloads.
Now I was informed that is not true. So which is it?
Any help is appreciated before I place my next order.

Fiocchi, Nobel Sport, Cheddite - all are larger ,European, primers. I sometimes have had luck going back to a Win209 - but they are looser than usual. I haven't had one fall out, but they certainly go in easy! There is a primer hole reconditioning tool from BCI.

Once I start reloading a batch of hulls with European primers, I keep using them until it is time to toss them. You might be OK switching back, if you are shooting a break open gun, but cycling in a semi-auto has been known to knock a primer loose, and cause problems when it gets stuck inside your action.

Have tried fiocchi primers then tried using Winchester primers. they fit just tight enough to seat but ended up with burnt powder around the primer.

That is not correct. Cheddite primers are US sized, and you can go back to Winchester or Remington primers. The others are a bit oversized for US standards.

Haven't used any Fiocchi or Rio but did have that problem (among others) with N.S. No problems switching between Rem.--CCI--Fed.--Cheddite--Win--Wolf. Best luck (most consistent & fewest duds) with Rem.. or Fed. but can't afford Rems. at current price. Ross Puls
