  • Smellier &Bellot Primers

    Anyone used them? I'm looking to keep costs down for some plinking reloads and Cabela's has these for $22 both small and large rifle and large pistol.
    id jump on the offer, but I'm leery about sub-par performance. I've used their pistol ammo with no issues and assume these are the primers used.

      I have heard, they're slightly small, about like fed, so you don't want to use them for loose pockets, other than that good reports. Couple threads on castboolits on them.
      If we don’t speak out against the infringements of today, it will weaken our ability to stop the next infringements.
      Since it took 26th Amendment to change voting age, expanding rights under 14th Amendment. Why doesn't same requirement, to restrict rights, extend to 2nd Amendment?

        I've used many thousands of these primers, both large pistol and small, and never had an issue or a failure to fire. They have always gone bang.
