Primers cci 200-350

Going to load 44mag FTX 225gr for my lever rifle 2400 power using 21gr. I find myself with no cci 350 lg pistol mag primers or 300 pistol. Can I use 200 lg rifle or 250 lg mag rifle?

Did you know rifle primers are taller than pistol primers?
Having said that, I heard of plenty of strange improvising when primers disappeared after the 2008 election.

You cannot safely use any large rifle primer in .44 Mag unless you somehow alter the depth of the primer pocket -- and doing that could (?) compromise the cartridge itself, so you will need to find some large pistol primers.

However, there is good news -- Alliant 2400 has a long reputation of not often benefiting from Magnum primers, and seems to like a standard pistol primer better than a magnum one.

So if you have any standard large pistol primers, go with those.
