Does anyone know if there is a difference between a Rem 209 and a Rem 209P primer? I'm trying to match up 12 gauge loads between two hulls and one spec Rem 209 and the other Rem 209P.

Years ago Remington hulls used a different size primer than WW or Federal. In recent years that has changed, and all are the same size. Possibly the difference between the 209 and 209P is that they are different sizes. I stcoked up on primers years ago, and don't load all that many shotshells so I can't go in the shop and look and give you a definite answer, but it may be that size difference.

Some older primers also differed in that they didn't have the small white disk inside the primer "flash hole". (take a look at a new primer, you'll see it) This keeps powder and other crap from getting in and contaminating the primer.
