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.

    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.

    Every precision hand-loader knows that slight variations in ignition can affect your group size and deviation downrange. That's why these CCI .50 BMG primers are produced in accordance with military specification in order to reliably ignite the heavy load required by the caliber with accuracy-saving consistency. In addition, these primers use a sensitive, non-mercuric compound for dependable function without risk to your rifle or your health. This 500-count bulk pack will ensure that your bench is well supplied and that you stay competitive all season.

    It does the job!

    How I long for the good old days when I could buy 10,000 at .21 cents each! Oh well, those times are past.
    If you reload for a shoulder cannon like the 50 BMG, this primer is tops. I have never tried the Tula brand but in all the years of reloading, I never had a FTF with these primers. Works every time and they are consistent in quality. For my application, I seat .002"-.005" below flush with the case bottom.
