  1. Gene

    Great primers, fed well on the dillon square deal b.

  2. preyreyman

    These seat well, and I have not had a failure to fire from any.

  3. Yardman

    used these in 9mm and worked fine. will buy again.

  4. Michael

    Fire positively with the lightest spring kits.

  5. Randy

    This is one of the most consistent primers on the market. I have used Rem. primers since opening the store in 1976 in my and customers reloads.

  6. Steve

    Have used these by the thousands and have never had ONE not fire! I shoot for recreation and love this primer in my .357 and my 9mm. Very satisfied with the performance.

  7. Gary

    These are a great product I have been using them for about a year. They are identical to the standard primers except they have a heavier cup that will take the higher pressures in the 357, 357 Sig and the 40 S&W. I have been loading both the 9 and the 40 with these this year. I use unique powder. I was using MagTec primers earlier and was getting a long muzzle flash on the 40. Very impressive but I would rather the powder burned in the case. Once I exhaust my current supply of primers, I expect to go back to these for both the 9mm and the 40 S&W. No problems seating and no misfires.

  8. Shane

    I have started using these primers for nearly everything I load. This includes everything from 9mm to my .357 Magnum Cartridges. I was concerned about a warning on the 1-1/2 Type Primers not being recommended for .40 S&W. After speaking directly to Remington regarding the warning, I learned that the only difference between these Primers and the 1-1/2 type is the thickness of the sheet metal used in the manufacture of the primer cup. Remington stated there is no difference in the priming compound between the two different primers, and these can be used on nearly every cartridge, low or high pressure.If you do have questions, I do strongly encourage folks to speak with Remington directly as I did.Good Luck and Happy Shooting!

  9. Vern

    Remington primers provide the best accuracy/reliability/service in many of my reloads.

  10. Mike

    I have use these primers for over 35 years for loading 357 mag. They give more consistant and higher velocities than CCI or other magnum primers with slower burning powders such as 2400 or H-110. Ken Waters also confirmed this in one of his Pet Loads articles several years ago.
