Yes, There strait walled hulls.

Yes, Your going to need to use a Rio or a Nobel Sport primer. American sized primers will fall out of the primer pocket. Euro shells have a larger primer pocket than American made shells.

PS: I'm pretty sure Winchester HS hulls all have a strait wall now as well!!! break em all Jeff

I have a thousand rio primers and several hulls. I tried to sell them and the hulls for less than the price of the primers before this shortage no takers.
I might put them in the auction i saw 600 chedite that were at 60 last time l looked.

As usual..Pull and Mark is correct. When he says the American primers will fall out of the Rio hull, he ain't kidding. If you ever use a Rio primer in a hull and try to use a Winchester, Fed, Rem, or Cheddite, it WILL fall out IN THE LOADER before it goes all the way around the turret.
On the other hand, I load a lot of Federal papers and after a load or two they begin to leak around the primer. I use Rio's after one loading and toss them. Works great, no leakage.

p.s. I bought 10,000 Rio's in a real deal several years ago and everybody said I was nuts (I am by the way) but I gave $.80/100. That's right $8.00/1000. Looks pretty good now!

The hull might be straight walled, but the base wad insert makes that hull load like a tapered walled hull.
