Stumbled upon these at a local shop....couldn't say no at that price....

So according to the packaging they are good for any firearm......

They micrometer the same as a Large Rifle primer...

I guess I'll load up 10 rounds or so and compare the results to a CCI 200?

They make rifles in pistol calibers, maybe thats what the box is referring to? You'll find out when you seat them. At that price, why not buy em?

I have shot 800 of their small pistol (4.4) and 300ish of the large pistol with no issues. Would definitely buy again, especially at that price.----R

I would not use large pistol primers in a rifle. The opposite direction should be safe.

I like S&B rifle primers. If anyone has any for large rifle, I’d love a pm.

Pistol is magazine fed.
Interesting. The official Oxford/Websters definition for pistol is any weapon that is designed to be shot with one hand. Apparently ATF has decided that is a "handgun" and arbitrarily labeled any handgun with a fixed chamber as a "pistol." Who woulda thunk it.

Upper right corner of the package says rifle, pistol, and revolver....kind of funny, but for $40/1000 I'll give it a whirl.
If it says rifle, use them in your rifle. I love their large rifle primers.

FWIW, we loaded 10 rounds of 270 Win with these primers.

They all went bang. They shot identical to CCI 200 at 100 and 200 yards.
