Please explain primers.

From what I understand there are only two primer sizes, small and large. However there is pistol, magnum and rifle types. I'm only loading pistols right now but I'm about to start loading 38/357 and 30-30 plus 327fed-mag in the future.

I've been told that magnum primers are not that necesary for 38/357 but are for the 327fed-mag and obviously I'd get large rifle for the 30-30.

My main question is, if the sizes are the same (small,large) what is the difference in ignition? Sorry if this seems like a dumb question
