What primer?

Post by PursuitSS » 09 Jul 2017, 19:03

I'm looking to go SLIGHTLY hotter than a factory SS197 load.

I'm going to be using Hornady 40 gr Z-Max bullets
True Blue powder
But I have Winchester Small Rifle primers "in stock", but I've seen loading data recommending both pistol & rifle primers.

BTW, I'm thinking 5.2 grains of True Blue.

Search the reloading section and you will find data for for TB and the 40gr V-max.

Rifle primers are best since the 5.7 is hard on primers and the OEM primers are small rifle.
