I asked G&H to verify the chamber size of 2 5/8. They sent me 2 pictures that I have tried to attach here. I am not too good with computers but here goes.
thank you

also if you have some hulls that a 209 primer is to big for the primer hole these hulls use the no 57 primer which is smaller than a 209 primer....old remington paper and plastic hulls used the no 57 primer.....i still reload a few old hulls useing the 57 primer....charlie

Found this on a reloading forum and it works. Take a SPENT 209 primer and insert it into the 57 opening using your normal press and procedure. Take it out and a new 209 will now fit. I have a case of 16 ga. early Remington plastic cases, no shot collar and fiber wads that I have been reloading this way. Have also done Remington paper 28 ga.
