I've also been told that lg pistol primers could also be used for lg rifle applications, is this also doable w/o much, if any, load mods?


Be careful with this, as the cup guage is not as thick on pistol primers and it is much easier to get a ruptured primer from a high pressure rifle load. Also, from what I hace heard, the pistol primers are shallower than rifle primers and can be easily overseated, either during the seating process, or from firing pin strike, not allowing as consistent of ignition.

Thanks East! Just wondering, as I haven't ever tried it, but an older gent here at work says it can be done in a pinch.

When I was looking for small pistol primers a couple of weeks ago, a guy at the reloading store explained that you can swap small rifle for small pistol in some rounds - .40 S&W specifically. With the shortage of primers these days, I believe we will see more of this type question being asked.
