    Default primers for the 416 Rigby

    I see that most manuals show fed. primers in the 416 Rigby I was wondering if anyone has used rem. 9 1/2M in the Rigby? I use rem. primers in all of my other cal. including the 375 RUM. and it would be nice to not have one more thing to get mixed up on my reloading bentch.

    I have only used Fed 215's, and CCI 250's they both work great.

    Ditto what 505ED said - I have had good results with the Federals and the CCI's.

    I use W-W LR Magnum primers in my Rigby and they work fine. Any magnum primer will work and most LR primers will also be fine.
    Time spent in Reconnaisance is never wasted.
