Opinions on Sellier & Belloit Primers?

    With primers so hard to come by lately, I noticed that Grafs has S&B small & large pistol primers in stock.

    I've never used them, and in the past, hadn't been inclined to purchase anything but Winchester, Remington, Federal, or CCI. However, I'm not sure if I can continue to reload while maintaining my high moral standards.

    Does anyone have any experience with these? Are they crap? How do they perform compared with the more "respectable" brands.

    I went through about 10K with no problems at all. These were both small pistol and large pistol. I wouldn't hesitate to buy the again.

    I have not used them but I have not heard anything bad about them.

    Considering how long S&B have been around, all the ammo they make, more than likely use their own primers, I'd say it's a pretty good bet they'll work just fine. This reminds me of people asking in 1977; Are those Toyotas and Hondas any good?

    I have used S&B LP without issue in .44SPL, .44Mag, and .45ACP. Can't vouch for their SP though.

    Thanks all - this may be the ticket.

    They are more respected in Europe then Winchester & Remington.

    They didn't get where they are today making inferior products.

    I just picked up 5000. After watching the TUL primers go on powder valley i got these before these did too, ive never used the primers but i have shot tons of SB ammo with zero issues.

    thanks for the heads up,
