209A vs. 209 Primers
I purchased some Federal 209A primers by mistake (didn't have my reading glasses with me). I was in the process of a 100 round reloading run when I noticed a difference in the appearance of the primers after seating. I looked at the box of primers and it stated in so many words not to use 209A primers in place of 209 primers. So I've got 75 rounds loaded with 209A's. I just want them to go bang at the trap range. Should I be concerned?
I've since went back and purchased CCI 209 primers and re-sorted my hopper. I might try to sell the remaining 209A's to somebody at the club that would use them.
That which does not kill me, makes for great campfire stories.
