Question on Primers

I am reloading hunting loads.I had 1000 Federal 210M match primers,but after several years I have about used them all.I have 1000 CCI 200 and 1000 Remington 9 1/2.Is it worth the trouble for me to get another case of the Federal.I know not to change to magnum,and I know it's something a bench rest shooter is not going to do,but I am not going to shoot at anything far enough away that 1/2 inch difference is going to matter.Would it be a bigger deal than that?

Switch primers, you have to rework your loads.

I'd start with the Remingtons first, and see how they do. Then try some of the CCIs. You might get lucky and find that you don't have to change your load too much.

Some years ago I got lucky and when I switched from CCIs to Winchesters in my .30-06 (dealer was out of CCIs) and doing nothing else to the load my groups tightened up and I had fewer flyers. The opposite could have been just as easily true.
