Not surprisingly, shotgun primers (also known as 209 primers after their .209"" diameter) are typically used for shotgun shells. Modern muzzle-loading rifles also use these primers as a substitute for percussion caps.
Unlike rifle and pistol primers, shotgun primers generally cannot substitute for other primer types. Of course, always be sure to check with the manufacturer or a trusted reloading guide before substituting.
