I'd like to point out that there is NO mention of an interest or desire to make primers or where to get components to do that in the OP.

ALL that's asked is literally "what's in them?"

Over the years many different chemicals have been tried, and many different variations of formulas. Early on were the mercury based ones, including fulminates. Later Mercury was replaced with other chemicals, one being Potassium and still later even lead compounds in chlorate, azide and styphnate formulations.

You don't need to fear giving away state secrets by telling someone the base chemicals or even compounds used in anything. Detailed step by step "how to" instructions are another matter.

And actually doing something with that information is yet something else, entirely.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
