I just wanted to throw this out there to see if anyone has any input on using these primers. Anything good or bad about them? Would you pay the same price per 1,000 as you would for cci, winchester, remington etc.?

They are all I use for loading .223. No problems yet and I've used thousands.

My experiences with them:

I bought some (KVB 5,56M/Wolf NCSRM) from Wideners a couple months back, paid about $18/k for them.

I have only loaded them up for my AR with W748. On the lower charges, I had quite a few hang fires & failure to fires. On the higher charges, they have performed great.

Personally, I wouldn't pay 30/k for them. But for the 18/k, they are worth the money.

Had the same issue. Sold them and bought the hotter 223M wolf primers. None loaded yet but hoping it fixes the issues

Brought the same stuff for the same price at the same time from the same source. Tried it out last week shooting LC90 brass/TAC/77 grain Noslers and had absolutely no problem. The primers are not hot despite the "Magnum" in the name but their cups are thicker which is good.

I used a GemPro to weigh out 20 of each of the Wolf SRM, Rem 7 1/2, and CCI 400 - average weight was 3.64 (range 0.1) vs. 3.56 (range 0.1) vs. 3.45 grains (range 0.14) respectively.

I've used about 3k of the Wolf 223M (magnum with the hotter load) in both 55 gr. and 77 gr. loads so far.

I compared them using 77 gr. SMKs with Varget to CCI400s, and Rem 7 1/2s and found the 223Ms to give about 35 fps more velocity, with a lower ES and SD than the others.

I wouldn't hesitate to use more.
