Rule of thumb:
.223 case size or smaller uses Small Rifle primers.

Anything larger then the .223 case uses Large Rifle primers.

There are exceptions in some of the bench-rest and odd ball wildcat calibers, but this rule will work for 99.9% of standard calibers.

With CCI primers it would be The 200 or the 250 in some loads. i use the Large Rifle BR CCI. With care you can neck down a .308 win. case and trim it.
They work fine. No special dies. Just work them in slowly with lube. No real advantage to this but it can be done.
