Yes there appears to be a crimp.Is there a crimp ring around the primer pocket? If so, prolly 5.56.
So if I remove the crimp can I use my cci small rile primers on it and load it as .223? Or do I have to buy military 5.56 primers.Incorrect terminology used by my self. What that was implying was, "a 223 case with a military style primer crimp loaded to 5.56 pressure spec."
Yes, you can. Advantages? Nothing more than they are said to be more consistent than standard small rifle primers. I personally don't have and of my own numbers to back that statement. You'd have to ask a bench rest shooter.Can I use small rifle magnum primers? What is the advantage of it?
Ok thanks. Was just curious because of the guy on craigslist selling wolf small rifle magnum primers.Yes, you can. Advantages? Nothing more than they are said to be more consistent than standard small rifle primers. I personally don't have and of my own numbers to back that statement. You'd have to ask a bench rest shooter.
Not necessarily. The .223/5.56 case relationships are the same, unlike that of the 7.6x51 versus .308 winchester.5.56 is thicker? Correct?
And, just because a chart says X weight, it doesn't mean that your's will be X weight.
Use the correct product.SMALL RIFLE PRIMER (part # QQQSR) - Used as a standard small rifle primer. Perfect for the 30 carbine and 223 standard loads. Many people use this primer in bench and other loads for the 223. This primer is a copper colored primer.
SMALL RIFLE MAGNUM PRIMER (part# QQQSRM) - This is the primer we had before for use in the 5.56 loads and hot 223 loads. A thick cup for the higher pressure. We sold a lot of these primers earlier this year. The new lot is brass colored instead of nickel.
SMALL RIFLE 223 (part # QQQSR223) NEW NEW This is the newest primer available in the Wolf line. It is ever so slightly hotter than the small rifle magnum primer and it comes with a brass or copper colored thick cup. This primer can be used in place of the SRM primer or used when a different powder is used that is hard to ignite.
Did you note the *?CCI® No. 34 and No. 41 MILITARY RIFLE PRIMERS
Military-style semi-auto rifles seldom have firing pin retraction springs. If care is not used in assembling ammunition, a "slam-fire" can occur before the bolt locks. The military arsenals accomplish this using different techniques and components—including different primer sensitivity specifications—from their commercial counterparts. CCI makes rifle primers for commercial sale that matches military sensitivity specs that reduce the chance of a slam-fire when other factors go out of control*. If you're reloading for a military semi-auto, look to CCI Military primers.
*Effective slam-fire prevention requires more than special primers. Headspace, chamber condition, firing pin shape and protrusion, bolt velocity, cartridge case condition, and other factors can affect slam-fire potential.
