View Full Version : why doesn't anyone use Remington br primers?

Found a decent deal on small rifle br Remington primers. I can't find CCI or federal in my area so I purchased them. I read a bunch about them and I know they shoot a bigger spark but I can't see why that's a bad thing. It seems like people used to use them a lot. Am in for a headache?

Haven't used any Remington primers in a long while but they were good back when. Buy a hundred or so Federal primers and use them for a few shots to check things. Just so you'll know kinda thing.

I have found that, for me, the Wolf/Tula primers give me better accuracy and better ES's.

Has anyone used them and noticed higher velocity due to bigger spark ?

When I first started shooting BRest, remington 7-1/2 was all I used and I never had an issue with them. The only reason I stopped using them was when I wanted more one time I couldn't get them so I bought Federals and just didn't bother with Remington anymore. I did see a few people using them at the Dec shoot in Phoenix though.

Not too many people use chronos in short range br so they check the difference on the target and rem primers work well

I started with the Remington BR primers years ago. Tested [others] a long the way but was never satisfied with them. Remington BRs are all I use. In this game there's a lot of monkey see monkey do or plain old follow the leader. :)

Rem 7.5 primers are good primers, I used them for years in my Hart's and Stolle's. however due to their harder cup I had ignition problems in on e of my Bat's they simply did not go off, the firing pin made a real good dent. Since then I use Fed 205's
