Watching 8541 tactical's episode of Mail Call Monday yesterday got me wondering has anyone noticed a big difference in different primers in their reloads? I've just been running cci cause Cabelas in Wheeling had a shit ton of them one time when I was there.

I doubt you're ever going to notice much of a shift in POI if you're just loading plinking or hunting rounds, unless you're shooting LR precision matches it shouldn't matter to much.

I think seating depth variances are more likely going to be a bigger factor than differences in primer batches.

That was my thinking 8541 was saying he normally shoots federal GMM primers but couldn't find any so he got cci benchrest. Shooting the kind of matches he shoots I think that's kinda splitting hairs but then again he's definitely a better shot than I lol.

I've never changed just the primers. So I dunno. Plus I'm not good enough to notice that sort of deviation. 

Getting charge weights, brass length and COAL as close to the same as possible made a bigger difference in my experiences.
