    I'm not much of a fan of the idea of using magnum primers for standard loads. I really try to follow the directions.

    It's true that Federal SPP are out of stock at Powder Valley but the Federal Match SPP are in stock and only $4 more per 1000.

    I would just order a few thousand match primers and not worry about the $20. In the bigger scheme of things, $20 just isn't important.

    I use magnum small primers all the time for "normal loads". I never run the ragged edge so it has never been a problem. If I was close to or at the top end of a load I would back off and work my way back up.

    By all the time I mean that is all I have used for the last 3 years. What can I tell you I got a great deal and bought lots!

    A lot of competition shooter over at BE do the same thing. You will find a lot more information on it over there than you will here.
