.223/5.56 Tula KVB556M, CCI SR Mag.
LP I have used CCI, Rem, S+B, Win, prefer CCI and S+B
SP I have used CCI, Rem, S+B, Tula, Win, prefer CCI and S+B
S+B are hard to beat for the price.
Shotgun is different though, I always use the primer specified in the recipe.
Whatever goes bang...
I started reloading at the tail end of 2013 (bad timing) thus was only able to find Wolf SP primers, but lucked into some Federal LP magnums, and lately CCI. I try to purchase CCI exclusively due to the stellar reviews from old timers on here and elsewhere. If I could find S&B within driving distance, I'd give them a try as well. Never had issue w/ Wolf. Just seemed hotter.
And so it goes....
For shotgun, I'll use whatever primer the recipe calls for.
Right now I have:
CCI SP & SP Mag
S&B SP & LP
S&B SR & LR
In the past year I've used Tula SP, LP, & 223 SR
Remington SP & SR
If all things were equal, I like CCI the best.
But when I can save $10/box - like I did on the S&Bs - I'll take the savings.
Agree. 3 boxes of S+B SP on sale = 2 of CCI at the time I bought the S+Bs.
