Reloading – Primers – Little things that make a big difference.

The Big Man | January 18th, 2019


In this video I go over some results that I saw using different primers in load development. I was searching for a node at a particular velocity and not getting there with the primers that I have always used, so I thought I would switch up primers to see what difference that made.

Until next time, thanks for watching and have fun outside.

Brass can make a significant difference if you try and use the same powder charge in multi brass manufactures. The case capacity can very quite a bit meaning more space for powder or higher possible pressures. Lots of variables for sure. Great test brother. Thank you \


Hi ya Eric, very interesting results with those primers. I am gonna try that some day for sure. I know for a fact different brass WILL make a difference in speed. Question, your looking to get your projectile up to or past 2900 fps, but why? Isn’t accuracy the goal?
Thanks, karlb


did u see the jrb vid on comparisons? the nosler and the valkerie has major brass and primer pocket problems for reloaders.
