I bet they all work about the same, I went through 4K of the 205M's and 1K of regular 205's and did not see a difference betwixt them. They all worked perfectly.

EDIT . I assume the cups are harder than normal fed primers.
The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life.

Cups are soft and thin

I just stopped using GM205M Primers in the AR.
Do to Peircing, I have had a few in the last couple hundred rounds.
Also quit using WSR Primers for the same reason.
Switched to Rem. 7 1/2, hope these work better.

yep, same on both the gold colored WSR's and the federal match. The fed match flattened at the much earlier stages in the work up. The WSR's bit me when I brainfarted and used up my silver WSR's and switched to the gold colored without reworking. That cost me a firing pin tip. Loads were below maximum.

I now use the rem as standard and the Wolf for plinking. My remainder of my 2k of gold WSR's are used in my bolt rifle .223 shooting.

Remington 7-1/2's are excellent primers for the ARs, especially since the pricing is great compared to standard primers..

Remington 7.5 primers are my "go to" primers for AR's, when I can get them. I have 2K that I am sitting on. Using up my CCI and PMC (russian) primers first.
