For me type trumps brand in most situations. If switching primes I use the starting load, and work up.

Exceptions to this are using standard Remington Small Rifle primers for loading .223, There is a warning on the box about not using them. I made the mistake early on and pierced one in my Savage. I used the rest of them for 9 mm which they worked just fine for.

Oh I also use CCI small rifle primers in place of pistol primers if in a pinch, though I check with a starting load and work up. Also I check them in each pistol I am going to use them in, to assure the firing pin will crush them.
