What's the best brand of primer?

This question is best asked of your gun.
It WILL tell you.

Most people can't shoot well enough to tell the difference. The same goes for Powder, Brass, and Reloading Dies.;)

Depends on what I do but most all reloading I do is for rifle competitions.
90% of my load are with the following.
vithivouri powders
lapua cases
berger bullets
remington primers
Never found any of my match rifles over the years that did not like those.

I've found Federal Primers--Gold Medal--work for me--I had a chance to try 1000 primers iof different brands and types n the same 4 loads and had the least variation in chronograph info and groups size with them. That being said, the difference was not very big at all. If you are looking for a primer alone to shave off a 1/2 MOA from your group--it's not going to happen.

My match rifle will shoot well with any of them.

My answer is still correct, ay?
