    Hi everyone.

    I was pondering ammo consolidation today and was wondering if anyone had tried using standard primers in magnum rounds.
    Has anyone chronographed the difference in 357 or 44?

    I know that some bigger pistol cartridges use small rifle primers, like the 5.7x28, and I was wondering if anyone here had tried using standard pistol primers instead.
    I've also read about pressures of primers varying by manufacturer, and how specific powders(spherical or ball) powders were recommended for certain rounds like magnum and rifle...

    I've reloaded 41 Mag for a long time. Never used anything but standard primers, even with H110 & W296. If I ever was to use Mag primers, I would back the charge down and work back up.
