I have 8#'s of powder on order. I have plenty of CCI 400's and some winchester primers on hand. I just wanted to hear some feedback from folks who have used 748 with and without mag primers. This will be 55 grain stash/plinking ammo. Thanks
ETA-same question with H335 powder.

Some books have W748 spec'ed for use with a mag primer....then, some don't.

I don't use a mag primer (I use std Fed Sm Rifle Primers) with my W748 loads in .223/5.56mm. That's ME.

Aloha, Mark

I use CCI 400 all the time, no problems here.

After a lot of experimenting, I have found the best accuracy using wsr primers with W748.

I've never used a magnum primer with W748, regardless of caliber.

Looks like a no across the board, thank you for your input.

I do it and it is no problem with the reg primer

Standard primer with H-335 also.

I use RP 7 1/2 primers with all loads and all powders, Win 748, WC844, Rel 15, and H335. Remington says it's a match primer and I've seen it compared to a magnum primer but all I know is they go bang every time and a fast accurate piece of lead copper jacketed projectile goes downrange from 2700-3200fps.

Since late 1987/early 1988, nothing but plan Winchester Small Rifle & CCI-400.

Currently using what I can get on the cheap the easiest at local FFL.
