I was shooting my Huntsman the other day. I had been using Winchester 209 primers. I had some Remington *97 primers and tried them. My groups suddenly improved. Are those still available? I am using 100 gr. of Pyrodex and 250 gr. T/C Shockwaves. Deer season starts Saturday here in Iowa. I can't wait!
Are those Remington *97 primers like the rem 209-4 primers for 410ga?
I am not familiar with that term ( *97 ). ops:
I know that the Winchesters are hotter primers than the regular CCI's, and believe even the reg Remington 209's.
In the past, a lot of talk about cooler primers allegedly giving better accuracy. Are you thinking of any possible connection?
I have had these primers around for quite awhile. I think they probably aren't made anymore. I used them originally reloading some Remington RXP shotgun hulls. It seems like they were a little cooler firing than other primers. Unfortunately I only have about a 100 left. I have been wanting to try the 209-4 primers but can't seem to find them locally.
