Small Pistol Primers

Most non-magnum handgun cartridges such as the 9mm Luger, .38 Special, .380 ACP, and .40 S&W use small pistol primers to ignite the powder charge. You'll see everything we have for sale in-stock below.

A small pistol primer measures .175" (4.45mm) and is not to be confused with the small rifle primer, which has the same diameter but not the same thickness. The two are not interchangeable.

Many companies produce SP primers, with Winchester and CCI being some of the top brands for reloaders.

    Long time customer

    I have done business with Wideners since for many years and all the purchases have been excellent. If only those shipping companies would stop the extortion.

    Review by SPIN (Posted on 6/8/16)

    All that I need!

    When you reload without any issues and they always go bang. Then you should stay what works.
    Not the cheapest nor the most expensive and sometimes difficult to find you learn to buy and hoard whatever is the most demanding and vacuum seal them to keep them fresh till you need to use them. That is exactly what I do. I hoard brass, powder, primers and bullets for when the SHTF and what better primer than CCI.
