    I have heard that Wolf primers are slightly larger than other primers and was wondering if anyone had problems with the large or small feeding in thier 550. Thanks!-

    I've used SR in my 550 and LP in the 650 for about three years now; no problems. The size difference is noticeable when seating, but hasn't been an issue for me.

    No problems using the K&M hand tool or the old RCBS bench mounted primer, either.

    Just finished a batch of .223 using once fired LC cases. Swaged the primer pockets & used Wolf's srp successfully. Primers DID seat a little tightly but not enough to deform them or leave the finished product out of spec in any manner.

    Stuff works well in both my 16 and an M'2 carbine.

    I did have a seating issue with LPs. We had been using Federals and out of habit I seated the Wolfs the same way. They were not fully seated so I ran them through a hand primer. You just need to be sure to add a little extra effort.
