Federal Small Pistol Primers

Some Federal Small Pistol Primers are soft (federal), some are hard (usually CCI), and some are middle (Winchester). If your pistol has a mild or altered trigger/action, you may need to use a soft primer. Winchester Primers, WLP (Winchester Large Gun – Versatile) and WSP (Winchester Small Gun) Next: Gun Cartridge Basic.

I have found that Federal and Fiocchi use small gun primers in their ammo. It’s conclusive that large primers give more velocity with all powders tested, especially the slower ones like Herco. The large pistol primer has a more robust ignition on the powder charge.

It is the primary job to burn propellant powder inside the gun cartridge. If there is no primer, the bullets will get stuck in the barrel. But the primer contains explosive material inside the metal cap, but only slightly. Once the firing pin of a small pistol hits the primer cap, the priming chemical falls between the avil and brass cap. Buy Winchester Small Pistol Primers #1-1/2 Box of 1000 (10 Trays of for sale.

On the other hand, Magnum Primer is used for guns with significant cases. But it type of gun primer contains various ingredients and priming powder. Magnum shells are known to produce more gas. The addition of this primer causes high speeds due to the gas.

    I ordered 9mm ball in both the 115 and 124 grain. The 124 gets 5 stars, but the 115 gets 3 stars as the loads were not consistent and many times so low powered that our pistols wouldn’t even cycle. Not sure if we just got a bad lot, but previous lots of 115 were also great. Overall, I’d order again because the price was right!

    There was an issue with Fedex mislaying the package. That was not your fault. I just wish the communication with customer service was better.
