<blockquote><i>"These are listed as a direct sub for winchester 209 on the Alliant website I believe."</i></blockquote>They USED TO BE listed that way in the print version of Alliant's reloading data. No more.
That statement and the wad substitution chart that used to be above it have been removed from the data.
Either Alliant changed their policies about recommendations or Nobel changed their primers. Alliant can tell you which.
The only "special information" Alliant now publishes about primers is: <center>
Sissy, All of IMR's powders have been listed on Hodgdon's website for several years now. Hodgdon bought out IMR a few years back now. I still use Win. AA primers data and substitute the Nobels Sport primers for it. I have had no problems. If you want to do this and the data you want is near the top pressure I would verify the load with the powder company first, otherwise you should be fine. Break-em all. Jeff
I'm aware Hodgdon's on-line Reloading Data Center lists IMR, Winchester, and Hodgdon powders. However, Hodgdon's site lists each as a separate "Manufacturer". Data queries can specify any one of the three or "All" of them.
My post was referencing a reloading guide on a different website - namely, dkgtrading.com. It is a NobelSportItalia site with a guide using only Nobel Sport primers. Nobel Sports' guide is limited to Hodgdon powders - Clays, Titewad, Titegroup, International, Universal, Longshot, HS-6, and HS-7.
It doesn't list data for powders labeled IMR, Winchester, Alliant, or any other manufacturer.
To the best of my knowledge, there is no current industry source that describes Nobel Sport 209 primers as an acceptable substitution for ANY other primer. Unless or until an industry source makes such an endorsement, I won't be substituting them for anything.
Peace and safe loading.
Edited addition... Hi Mark, how recent are your emails from Hodgdon and Alliant??
