I've never had a problem with them, but CCIs seem to go in a bit tight for me.

I've noticed that in using Unique and loading medium loads in .357 and .44 magnum that magnum primers open up the groups at 25 yards about 3/4 to 1". I consider 1.5" good enough but 2.5 is much too large. This is the same even changing the amount of powder and bullet.

In no way have I done a thorough test but have tried both magnum but don't bother trying the magnum primers. 98% of my shooting is with medium loads that is the only certainty I have experienced.

Bart Bobbitt ~ 15 years ago on how important primers are in competition.

He is Bart B. here on TFL, but has not posted in 11 days, so I figured I had licence to quote him.
The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
