I have not used their primers for reloading, but I have reloaded a ton of their brass. Their brass has a rather tight primer pocket, and the reloader has to put a little extra oomp into pressing other brand primers into their brass. I do not know whether this would translate into their primers being a little loose in other brands of brass or not.

It is a good quality ammunition, and I personally like to reload their used brass. I would buy their primers if I needed primers. Let us know how it works out and how well their primers fit other brass.

I've used their small rifle and small pistol primers. They work as well as anything else.

I like their ammo so I would not have any problem buying their primers. I have not found a good deal on them yet so I have not purchased any. I can't say I can remember hearing anything bad from anyone using them.

I have shot some of the ammo but haven't gotten into the 2K of SR primers I purchased just yet. I figured they would be good for loading up rounds to feed my .223 AI Contender for the oldest grandson to shoot with. Since we mostly use it for little critters and crows, I figured they would be good enough. They should surely be as good as the Wolf primers I have been burning through.
