powder valley

now that i have your attention:
i've been using srp for pistol reloading(about a year)since i heard it's fine to do so(per arf).
i use those same primers for my ar loads(not hot, just plinking).
question is when i order from PV should i order srp or the 223? i think that's what it's called, maybe 556.

I believe the 5.56/223 primers are harder to keep from going off in a semi auto rifle. I would not change unless you need a lot for a semi auto rifle.
Just my 5 cents worth.

Hmm, I tend to use what is supposed to be used. Rifle primers are slightly hotter than pistol primers, they also have slightly thicker cups. If you work your loads up & the gun fires, then you can use them, but not advised. For rifles, if you shoot a semiauto, you don't need the mil spec primer (CCI#41), but they will help prevent a slam fire. Just stay away from Fed in semiautos & you should be fine.

wolf/tula have 3 different SR primers.

based on the info here,
http://www.wideners.com/itemdetail.c...ir=278|284|737

1. You have your regular 223 primers (223 is somewhere in the product code), these would be like Small rifle.
2. Then you have your 223M (223M is somewhere in the product code), these would be a small rifle with a harder cup for the free floating firing pins in AR's.
3. Then you have your 556M (556 is somewhere in the product code), these would have 2 additional things over the standard 223 primers. A harder cup and a lil more oomph!

The equivalent specs in the old wolf product codes would be
1. SR (standard)
2. SRM (harder cup)
3. 223 (harder cup and more oomph)

yup just placed my order tonight, I ordered 10k primers 8 pounds of unique and 1000 45 berry bullets, guy said I saved about 50 on shipping (actually just a little shy of)
so I am very happy, local dealer had 4 pounds of unique for 12 dollars less than the 8 pound jug I just purchased.
