    In my Lyman 47, they used cc1 300 in jacked bullets and Remington 2 1/2 in cast. Just FYI in metallic reloading primer manufacture does not make much difference. It might in competition rifle or at the maximum load edge, and defiantly w/ shot shell reloading, not w/ standard pressure metallic reloads.

    Any regular Large Pistol primer will do just fine. Just be cautious when substituting primer brands with maximum-pressure loads. In that case drop back a few 1/10ths and work back up slowly.

    I quit being picky about primers when they got hard find. I would just get whatever large pistol (non magnum) I could find.

    I would be hard pressed to disagree with that philosophy.

    I have what I consider a bunch of Wolf primers. While I shy away from thier ammo, I am happy with thier primers.

    Got a 1 box ea. of CCI large and small at local gun shop. He had plenty of small pistol but the 1000 larges I bought took his stock down by 2/3. I think I'll go back and get another box of smalls for good measure. Everywhere online (the big names at least) were backorder only for all pistol primers. Maybe someone oughta start a business.
