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.
