  1. clientservice

    I hand-load for several calibers; these primers gave me consistent and reliable ignition in the cartridges I loaded and used.

  2. clientservice

    These primers have a bit softer cup and give 100% ignition. Especially with a pistol that has a lightened trigger job that gives a lighter strike. Recommended for competition shooting were 100% ignition is a must. I get the worst performance with Winchester with occasional fail to fire. Will use these from now on.

  3. clientservice

    Bought 1,500 and fired about 300 so and they are great. Goes off every time.

  4. clientservice

    They can be used in place of standard primers, but not magnum primers. Federal makes a Gold Medal Match primer in a magnum version.

  5. clientservice

    They work well and have not exploded in dillon.


    The most consistent primer out there. Cons: One of the highest priced primer. Federal primers are ALWAYS in too large of a box.

  7. wayne jack

    My hand gun has a very light hammer spring, CCI WSP and Rem primers have a 12%-20% failure rate on first pull. The Federal primers bring acceptable firing rate to my target shooting. First pull failures are below 1%.(Gun is at the shop now for new springs.)Thanks Federal for turning a “rock” into a weapon!

  8. clientservice

    Really like theses primers go into primer pockets easily. I prime by hand so that’s important to me. I believe I get more uniform loads.

  9. Megan vouche

    These fire every time even in guns with light strike. No fail to fire in several thousand so far. These really help in Steel Challenge since any failure costs time and the match.

  10. Author tiche

    I bought some just before the shelves emptied, and I’m glad I did. reliable, well packaged and go bang every time in 380 and 9mm. Wish I could buy more.

  11. clientservice

    great primers and great shipping

  12. clientservice

    Can these match primers be used in pace of standard or magnum primers.

  13. clientservice

    Using these to load some 38 spl loads in a smith and wesson 327 R8, which is my steel challenge run. Federal primers are a must for use cases where you lighten up a revolver trigger. These ignite with considerably less hammer fall force than other brands of primers. Trigger pull on the gun is roughly 7.5 lbs , and the hammer fall weight is somewhere around 28-32 ounces out of an apex bobbed hammer. Get in the practice of changing your reloading cadence to seat these primers twice. I give them one nudge, pull back, then seat a second time to make sure they are absolutely in there. Crucial for using federal primers.

  14. clientservice

    Work great and fire every time

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

  15. clientservice

    No misfires with these; excellent with light striking firing pins

  16. clientservice

    I’ve used several different primers and most work fine. Some you have to work harder feeding them through your press and some consistently seat better. That is why I like these the best, less problems feeding through my press, they seat better than others and like the others they always work.
