Frequently Asked Questions

What are small rifle primers?

Primarily employed for target shooting, the little primer. Just enough primer compounds are present to successfully ignite the powder charge, which could lead to more reliable outcomes on targets.

The majority of hunting ammo contains a bigger primer with more primer compound to consistently ignite the powder under all circumstances.

What is the difference between large and small primers?

Brass lasts longer, and case heads from small-caliber rifle primers are stronger. In extremely cold temperatures, large rifle primers burn propellant more consistently and reliably.

What are the two types of rifle primers?

Modern metallic cartridge ammunition uses two separate centerfire primer types: Berdan and Boxer.

The fundamental distinction between the two is that Berdan primers have an anvil that is a part of the primer pocket on the cartridge case, whereas Boxer primers have an anvil that is self-contained within the primer.

Is it OK to use small rifle primers in pistols?

I typically respond with “no,” which is the simplest response. I specifically asked my sources in the ammunition sector: “Could a person safely load handgun cartridges if they only had small rifle primers?” Almost all of them responded with an immediate “no” and “That’s the official answer.”

How are small rifle primers made?

A primer is made of a brass cup filled with flammable lead styphnate. On impact, lead styphnate bursts.

In the manufacturing process, lead styphnate starts as a liquid. The compound is poured into the brass cup, and then a triangular piece of metal, known as the anvil, is placed within.

Why are there no small rifle primers available?

People being sick, missing work to care for their children, and self-quarantining—from factory workers to delivery drivers and up the supply chain—produced a production slump this spring.

The Remington bankruptcy has had a significant influence on the availability of ammo and primers.
