Large Rifle Primers
Large rifle primers are used to load many different cartridges including the .30-06 Springfield, .308 Winchester/7.62 NATO, 8mm Mauser, .303 British, and many others used for both target shooting and hunting.
A large rifle primer measures .21" (5.33mm) in diameter. Compared to large pistol primers of the same diameter, LR primers are thicker and taller.
Winchester and CCI both produce large rifle primers that you'll find for sale here at Widener's. Note that #35 primers for .50 BMG are not interchangeable with other LR primers so be sure not to load your other rifle rounds with #35 primers.

CCI #35 50 BMG Primers - 100 Count$35.50
Primer Type 50 BMG Manufacturer CCI Manufacturer SKU 0320 Quantity 100
With the increase in popularity for .50 BMG use in recreation and competition CCI has responded by making sure hand-loaders have the best component primer option available. These #35 primers fit the same military specification as primers used in factory loads and will burn cleanly with a sensitive, non-mercuric compound. CCI primers are well-known for seating easily and igniting reliably in wide range of temperatures. They manufacture the #35 primer specifically for the .50 BMG caliber in order to dependably ignite any feasible amount of heavy powder used with the cartridge.
I have bought items from these Folks in the past. A+ service every time.
