OK, so i was at a gun store and asked the guy behind the counter if they had any primers. He said they had small and large pistol. I told him i was looking for small rifle primers.
He said you could use small pistol primers in a rifle case, but you can not use small rifle in a pistol case. We had a long conversation and i felt he knew what he was talking about. He said the metal in the primers is the only difference. The pistol primers have a softer metal and can be used in either rifle or pistol ammo. The rifle primers have harder metal and therefore can't be used in pistol ammo.
Sooooo, what say you? Is the guy full of doo-doo?
