New to reloading shotshells. In fact, haven't started yet. waiting for my manuals to be delivered via Amazon. Primers? 209 or 209M. Which Primer for which load? I assume M is for magnum. Are they a preference? Are they for heavier Loads?(shot weight?) Just some things I'm thinking about while waiting on my manuals. Thanks

M is a magnum primer. Use exactly the same components as listed in the data. Do not substitute primers as pressures can drastically spike. Magnum primers are sometimes used for harder to ignite powders.

Ditto. Go with what the data calls for with your prefered powder and shot load. Brand of primer isn't that relivant, but don't mix/match magnums and no-magnums.
