    I am loading .223 using 748 powder, one book list magnum primers another doesn't. What do you guys think are magnum primers necessary?

    I use magnum primers with all ball powder in 223. W748 should make some good loads.

    That's also my philosophy, magnum primers with ball powders. Unless you're using some Winchester primers.
    I use CCI in all my brass.
    Win 209's in my shotshells.

    thanks

    I have worked up all my loads that take large rifle primers using magnum primers that way all I ever buy is magnum primers. This is the only one I have that takes small rifle primers, and this is my first reloading for it.
