    every once in a while a primer jumps out and goes flyin.
    any thoughts?
     
  11. What kinda primers are you using? Dillon himself told me to avoid CCI and recommended W-W. That was 20 years ago and I still use W-W in my Dillon.

    Mike,

    Was the W-W primers recommendation for use in Dillon presses, or a recommendation to use W-W over other primer manufacturers?

    I've used a variety of primers to reload, and presently I'm using Winchester, Remington and CCI.
     
  14. I was told to use W-W primers. I had been using CCI for years in a single stage press. Dillon told me that W-W are very uniform and feed well.

    Just to check I sent a message to Mike Dillon. When I get an answer I'll start a new topic with his reply.

    I use fed,s in rifles and WW standard or magnum in handguns.CCI was too inconsistant in fps and Remington failed to fire too many times. sam.
