  1. clientservice

    loads fine in 686 with lite trigger and always goes off

  2. clientservice

    I have ben reloading since the 1980’s and have only used one product. I was having difficulty obtaining primers due to the “shortage” in the market place. I did obtain these and have found that they are fully reliable, give full ignition with excellent times. More cost but quality that is worth the expense.

  3. clientservice

    I have started using these primers for nearly everything I load. This includes everything from 9mm to my .357 Magnum Cartridges. I was concerned about a warning on the 1-1/2 Type Primers not being recommended for .40 S&W. After speaking directly to Remington regarding the warning, I learned that the only difference between these Primers and the 1-1/2 type is the thickness of the sheet metal used in the manufacture of the primer cup. Remington stated there is no difference in the priming compound between the two different primers, and these can be used on nearly every cartridge, low or high pressure.If you do have questions, I do strongly encourage folks to speak with Remington directly as I did.Good Luck and Happy Shooting!

    Great primers, fed well on the dillon square deal b.

  5. clientservice

    These seat well, and I have not had a failure to fire from any.

  6. clientservice

    used these in 9mm and worked fine. will buy again.

  7. clientservice

    Hi, the only difference between the two is the cup thickness. These are not a magnum primer. The 5 1/2 is used mainly in rounds that have a high case pressure (example a .40) but work excellent in 9mms I use them in all my Glock’s, Hk’s, and Beretta’s.

  8. clientservice

    I have successfully used the Remington #5 Small Pistol Primers in 380 ACP, 9MM, 38 SPL, and 40 S&W. Just use a trustworthy load data source and utilize sound load development practices.

  9. clientservice

    The 1 1/2 is a standard small pistol primers. The 5 1/2 would be a magnum small pistol primer suitable for 327 or 357 magnum or equivalent cartridge.

  10. clientservice

    This is one of the most consistent primers on the market. I have used Rem. primers since opening the store in 1976 in my and customers reloads. Thanks Guns Valley

  11. clientservice

    Have used these by the thousands and have never had ONE not fire! I shoot for recreation and love this primer in my .357 and my 9mm. Very satisfied with the performance.

  12. clientservice

    These are a great product I have been using them for about a year. They are identical to the standard primers except they have a heavier cup that will take the higher pressures in the 357, 357 Sig and the 40 S&W. I have been loading both the 9 and the 40 with these this year. I use unique powder. I was using MagTec primers earlier and was getting a long muzzle flash on the 40. Very impressive but I would rather the powder burned in the case. Once I exhaust my current supply of primers, I expect to go back to these for both the 9mm and the 40 S&W. No problems seating and no misfires.

  13. clientservice

    I have use these primers for over 35 years for loading 357 mag. They give more consistant and higher velocities than CCI or other magnum primers with slower burning powders such as 2400 or H-110. Ken Waters also confirmed this in one of his Pet Loads articles several years ago.

  14. clientservice

    Excellent primer for any high pressure/magnum type load using a small pistol primer. I use them exclusively in my Marlin 1894 .357 Magnum. The only caveat is DO NOT use them in standard or low pressure cartridges such as .38 Special or .380 Auto. Reason being, these have a thicker cup to contain higher pressure and most handguns in lower pressure cartridges do not have enough energy in the firing pin or hammer to set them off 100% of the time. I had to learn this the hard way as Remington does not advertise this fact. I’m glad I found out on the range and not when my life depended on it, the loudest sound in the world is a click when you need a bang! My understanding is the 1-1/2 primer is what you need for standard pistol cartridges.

  15. clientservice

    i am not really happy with the results. the primers show high pressure on 38supercomp loads.

  16. clientservice

    Appears to have a hard cup. As many as 5 out of a hundred failed in my Glock 35 that has a 3 1/2 pound trigger. 2 in a hundred failed in my H&K that has an untouched 8# trigger.

  17. clientservice

    Using these to load some 38 spl loads in a smith and wesson 327 R8, which is my steel challenge run. Federal primers are a must for use cases where you lighten up a revolver trigger. These ignite with considerably less hammer fall force than other brands of primers. Trigger pull on the gun is roughly 7.5 lbs , and the hammer fall weight is somewhere around 28-32 ounces out of an apex bobbed hammer. Get in the practice of changing your reloading cadence to seat these primers twice. I give them one nudge, pull back, then seat a second time to make sure they are absolutely in there. Crucial for using federal primers.

  18. clientservice

    I bought some just before the shelves emptied, and I’m glad I did. reliable, well packaged and go bang every time in 380 and 9mm. Wish I could buy more.

  19. clientservice

    Work great and fire every time

  20. clientservice

    I use these in precision rifle loads. They are consistent and worth a few extra bucks if they are on sale.

  21. clientservice

    Works well, consistent.

  22. clientservice

    No misfires with these; excellent with light striking firing pins

  23. clientservice

    Great price and fast shipping

  24. clientservice

    They work well and have not exploded in dillon.

  25. clientservice

    I’ve used several different primers and most work fine. Some you have to work harder feeding them through your press and some consistently seat better. That is why I like these the best, less problems feeding through my press, they seat better than others and like the others they always work.

  26. clientservice

    Really like theses primers go into primer pockets easily. I prime by hand so that’s important to me. I believe I get more uniform loads.

  27. clientservice

    These primers have a bit softer cup and give 100% ignition. Especially with a pistol that has a lightened trigger job that gives a lighter strike. Recommended for competition shooting were 100% ignition is a must. I get the worst performance with Winchester with occasional fail to fire. Will use these from now on.

  28. clientservice

    I hand-load for several calibers; these primers gave me consistent and reliable ignition in the cartridges I loaded and used.

  29. clientservice

    Bought 1,500 and fired about 300 so and they are great. Goes off every time.

  30. clientservice

    These fire every time even in guns with light strike. No fail to fire in several thousand so far. These really help in Steel Challenge since any failure costs time and the match.

  31. clientservice

    The most consistent primer out there. Cons: One of the highest priced primer. Federal primers are ALWAYS in too large of a box.

  32. clientservice

    My hand gun has a very light hammer spring, CCI WSP and Rem primers have a 12%-20% failure rate on first pull. The Federal primers bring acceptable firing rate to my target shooting. First pull failures are below 1%.(Gun is at the shop now for new springs.)Thanks Federal for turning a “rock” into a weapon!

  33. clientservice

    The best primer for Cowboy Action Shooting, where light mainsprings are the norm. More reliable ignition than other primers in those rifles and pistols that have full race action jobs.
