I bought some out of desperation when primers were hard to come by. I only bought the large pistol primers and they work the exact same a Remington primer. No change in velocity or performance that a chronograph can tell. I WAS a Remington primer kinda guy but I guess I'll have to be changing everything over to another brand.
BUT, I'm going to throw this in there as a FYI, if you see any Federal primers marked as a catalytic primer- avoid them. The priming materials will come out if you use a kinetic type bullet puller which means they are real tender. The priming material ends up in the powder column and could be dangerous in max loads......if it goes off at all.
