Small pistol primer cups are softer.

In some rifles, you might find that the firing pin could punch through the primer, but in most cases I doubt you'll have an issue.

I'd just be sure to wear some shooting glasses and go on and fire them.

Not that I advocate the practice, but I've heard some folks claim better accuracy with the pistol primers in their particular .223 loads...
