I stand corrected.

Thirty years ago it was all there was.

Thisismysig, the manuals will list what brand of brass and primers they used to test their loads.

To take advantage of all that R&D, (99% of reloaders don't have their own pressure measuring equipment) it's best ("best" meaning conservative) to start with what they used.

If you start with something else, you're starting with a different load, different pressures and different velocities, and need to be ready to do your own testing.

To learn to reload, for my money, I'd start with the primers the folks who wrote the manuals used.

To ask a personal question, one that you're under no obligation to answer, why are you so determined to use a different primer?
