I've been using CCI's and they are just fine but I've not found them at a reasonable price. How about Wolf, Tula or S&B or any other brands? I've used S&B and Wolf in my pistol rounds just fine. Are there any brands to stay away from?

A few years back I had a chance to buy a close out. I bought about 20,000 Winchester primers in all sizes. I can't fore-see needing primers for a long while.

Bought a bunch of Federal various sizes when about $25K. Good fro awhile. Do have CCI for the 223.

I load my .45-70 with SR4759 and found Winchester Large Rifle primers -- not the magnum large rifle primers-- give the best results.

kwesi,

I use the Tula LR Magnum Primers to load jacketed full house loads for 375 H&H, 416 Rigby & 458 WM. I have had 100% success with these primers. I haven't tried any of the other Tula primers or the S&B or Wolf primers.

In my area we only find W-W, CCI, some Federal and Remington.
Some lever guys prefer the Federal as they have a softer cup. I started with Winchester and have not changed.

Winchester primers have always performed well for me. They provide consistent ignition from batch to batch in all calibers that I reload and have never let me down. Their large rifle primers are all I use for my 45-70 reloading.
