What's the difference between using LRP's and LRP'S Match primers?.?.???

308win with 110gr Barnes TTSX in Hodgdon Reload Center calls for Match primers...?????
Would LRP's be OK?.?

Thanks

match primers are manufactured to tighter control for consistancy

Thanks HIllCountryShooter

So I'm guessing that because I have no match primers that standard LRP's will still work ok...?

Thnx

will work fine, I tried the bench rest / match primers, I'm sure they help some, but my groups did not improve (I am no match shooter for sure) so I load with regular or magnum primers

As Hill Country mentioned, Match primers are supposed to be manufactured to tighter standards to have more consistent ignition (same size/temp of flame jet, every time).

I don't recall the source, but someone did a match vs standard primer consistency challenge. Same bullet and brass weight, same powder weight, with the only variable the primer brand and type. IF I recall the results correctly, some brands of standard primers were more consistent than the match versions.

Personally, the 'precision' rifles I use shoot MUCH better than me anyway. When 'I' get to the point where I'm shooting groups the size the rifles are capable of, then I'll worry about optimizing the components.
