Probably has a slightly thicker cup than normal primers but should work just fine. I use Federal AR small rifle match primers in my bolt guns without issue and they have a thicker cup.
 
I’ve used the CCI #34 variant. Essentially it acts like a (hard) large rifle magnum primer.
Same here. The primary purpose of the Military rifle primer is

#1. A thicker cup to prevent slam fires in the Stoner/Armalite platform from the free floating firing pin.

#2. Sustain higher pressures without rupture, especially in full auto and high rate of fire weapons.

#3. Allow the primer to be crimped or staked to the case.

As with any change in components, it's a good idea to go back to a starting load, the work your way back up in powder charges while looking for any signs of excessive pressure.

I've also used the CCI #34 for many years. They work very well for most all of large rifle primer needs, including magnums up to 375 Ruger
 
Well damn while I was here asking yall about them they sold out. Thanks again for the info at least I'll know next time.

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex

Are you still looking for a 375 H&H?
