I have never found any difference myself. I have also seen lots of studies that said he same. But humans are fickle. Or maybe gullible. Late in life I went back to college and studied amount others things advanced marketing. Nothing advanced about it, if you can tell a competitor that there is a better product out there, and create the fear, that he may lose his shooting match because he did not pay extra for that product, then he will buy it every time.funny how Match, BR, and the military equivalent stuff always seems to pop up during these times.
it's like they don't even make regular primers just the extra fancy ones.
Pretty interesting really. If you can create an illusion that some gun is better than the next people will pay more for that gun than a similar once. Take a RIA 45 the exact model as a Volt, compare them and shoot them, now do it with 100 of them, is there $500-$1000 difference in the two? The same thing happened in ARs for years but people arecwiser know. If you can put a gun together from parts and shoot under one inch at 100 yards with bulk steel cased ammo, us there any reason to pay $1500 for an AR that may not shoot as well? Probably not but they put fear into people by saying do you want to risk your life with a cheap gun? So out of fear, they pa the extra $1000.
And the best one of all is those $2000-$5000 top name 1911s. Read a story the other day that the guy saved his whole life for one and it comes and it will not feed hollow points, so he calls them. And they say, call use back after the 200 round break in. If I pay $3500 like he did for a 1911, I want it to work the day I get if. They sell those out of fear, And once you buy one, you can show it off because you now a member of The I Am Not Afraid Anymore Club. In the 70-80s they sold Corvettes under a theory of guys middle-aged lost thei a r sex appeal but they could look sexy if they had a red corvette. And they showed the middle age guys with young blonds with big boobs..
So if we do not use match primers were are not really very good reloaders, right.? Pretty funny for me, if they make a difference at all they would be for 1000 yardvshooters, Inwill use most of these in pistol rounds, 400 Corbon, and maybe sone 300 BLK and some 7.62 x 39. None of them would I ever shoot over 200 yards and the pistols not Far at all. I was just glad to get them
