    Power Pistol has a fast enough burn rate to require only standard primers. I ususally go by what the reloading manual recommends, but if I do use magnum primers, I will drop the charge at least one grain (unless I'm using very slow powders like W296/H110, etc.) and work up from there. I would never use magnum primers with maximum loads of faster powders (or even a stnadard primer for that matter) without carefully working up to it.
    Just as an aside, I've generally found that standard primers give me better accuracy, even with powders and loads that recommend magnum primers. Not all the time, but very often I find it to be true. And don't ask me why:dunno:.
