PRODUCT OVERVIEW: REMINGTON SMALL RIFLE PRIMERS| REMINGTON #6-1/2 PRIMERS
Every Remington rifle and shotgun has primer, a group of subcomponents that are produced with incredibly precise tolerances. The primer cup’s dimensions are controlled to within.0001″, and the priming mixture has been accurately manufactured to ensure reliable ignition with a wide range of powder types and compositions. Reliability tests on the Remington Small Rifle Primers now available for purchase are conducted at temperatures ranging from -20 degrees F to +150 degrees F. A larger strike area is produced with excellent sensitivity even when the firing pin impacts off-center thanks to the novel tripod anvil design.Warning:
Remington does not advise using this primer in the 17 Remington Fireball, 222 Remington, 223 Remington, or 204 Ruger. Implement the 7-1/2 Small Rifle

Hornet shooters may know how finicky these rounds are to any change in components. I spent years with different components in both my 22 Hornet and K-Hornet. I finally settled on Rem 6 1/2 primers and AA 1380 powder. This combination produces the tightest groups and consistent velocities in both cartridges. I use these exclusively now, and 12.6 gr. in Hornet & 13.5 in the K. Think they were made for it.

Apparently these are not for .223 although they were recommended by my LGS. Only time I noticed any potential problem or over penetration of the primer was with my LWRC M6A2 upper. I don’t own that anymore but in my DI gun I have not had any issues with these primers loading 21.5 grains (Not max load but not minimum) of RL10X. I have now fired about 1500 rounds of .223 using this powder with 6 1/2 primers and I have had no issues at
