    Have any of you ever use these or ever hear of them. Are they like the CCI military primers.

    I believe that Powder Valley is the only one selling these.
    Here's what PV said on another board;
    "The .223 primer is essentially the same primer as the Small Rifle. The difference is that it has a harder cup base to prevent blanking in AR15's"

    Sounds to me like Wolf repackaged their small rifle magnum primers as a military primer.

    I have used the Wolf Small (normal) pistol primers. My groups are a little larger with pistol, but not significantly so. I typically use Fed or Win primers and have worked up loads with Wolf primers that group well. I did have 1 primer out of 1000 so far that didn't fire. I did not examine it the round to determine why it didn't go boom. It was seated properly. I assume the anvil was missing.
