Primer Manufacturers:

CCI: In addition to our standard rifle, pistol and shotshell primers, we offer magnum primers, benchrest primers, and primers with mil-spec sensitivity for reloading military-style semi-auto rifles. We also make an excellent line of percussion caps for muzzleloading enthusiasts, and primers for the 50 BMG cartridge.

Federal: Federal offers a full line of primers that are manufactured to exacting tolerances, so if you load your own you know you're getting the same high-quality primer components and optimum ignition that make Federal Gold Medal cartridges the choice of match shooters everywhere.

Magtech: Part of the CBC ammo group that offer high quality cartridge primers that are manufactured to meet and exceed the most exacting performance and quality control standards in the ammunition industry.

Remington: Within every Kleanbore primer is a group of subcomponents assembled to exceptionally precise tolerances. Primer cup dimensions are controlled to four decimal places. The priming mix is specially formulated for consistent ignition with a wide variety of powder types, and tested for reliability over a temperature range of -20F to +150F. Individual primer pellet weight is controlled to .01 grams. A unique tripod anvil design creates a larger "sweet spot" with maximum sensitivity - even with off-center firing pin strikes.

Winchester: Winchester guarantees better sensivity for more positive firing in all guns, carefully-controlled weights of primer mixtures, consistency in size and quality, precise measurements and tolerances for anvil heights, and stability in extremes of temperatures and humidity. Winchester produces seven different primers to more than cover your reloading needs for shotshells, rifle and handgun cartridges.

Wolf: Wolf primers offer a reliable and uniform ignition as well as consistant functioning even in the most unfavorable weather conditions. Primers are non-mercuric and non-corrosive.
