Following on from another thread "primers" where talk was in relation to a shortage of a particular primer, got me wondering. What difference does it make & how noticeable?
I've not been reloading that long & when I started I went to the gunshop & asked for advice for a 100 grain .243 for my rifle. I came away with 2 types of bullet, 1 powder & 1 type of primers.
I set up ladder scale loads & found what I liked so stuck with it. Question is if I keep all other factors constant,
Brass, powder & bullet what difference would changing the primer have? Is the primer just a source of ignition or is it more complex than that?
I was using federal LR match primers now have standard federal primers
