Same primers used in Gold Medal cartridges. Manufactured to exacting tolerances. Uses Federal’s exclusive basic lead styphnate priming mix for optimum primer ignition.
The federal primers are my preferred primers for competition loads in 9mm and 38 mid.
Chronographing them against FSP primers consistently gives me smaller ES and lower SD.
Interestingly, the max velocity is either the same or a bit lower.
These are NOT max loads or anything close to that.
YMMV, proceed with caution.
Now, if I could just find more FSPM…
been able to find many Fsp standard primers, but have located Fspm primers.
Is there any reason to avoid using the magnum primers with reduced .38 Special or reduced .357 loads?
I had a small herd of these in the closet back from the last component shortage. So I decided to start loading them in my .40 minor loads. The targets and steel plates can not tell any difference. I always use magnum primers in my .38 special loads.
