Default Primers

I made my weekly trek to my club this past Tuesday. After my group was finished with our round of Sporting Clays I was informed by the target setter that the club had received with their last shipment 12,000 Cheddite 209 Primers. I have been trying to find primers for the last two months. I, being polite as I could, I purchased 2,000. Now back in business of reloading and not having to scrounge for factory ammo at ungodly prices.

That is good news. Our club is completely out of 20 gauge shells (except for steel shot which you can't use anyway).

Hopefully primers coming back is a sign the wider shortage is about to end

Only 2000 I'd have at least gotten 5K...better to have them and not need then than the other way around

I learned my lesson. I'm buying every time I see them from now on. If we get back to those days.

Rich,
I thought that way at first. There is a group of six of us that receive our components from Backwoods Quail Club. It cuts the hazmat fee. I was actually fourth in line purchasing the primers. Good to see your name pop up. Hope all is well.

Would one of you experienced reloaders be willing to comment on reports that since the Cheddite 209 is about .001 larger than the Win 209 it has the tendency to cause your hull's brass to stretch enough so as not to be able to use Win 209's after?
I am also grateful for the announcement here on their availability. Many thanks Quigley97!

I've used Cheddite 209's extensively over the past 8-9 years after they became readily available and can feel no difference in pressure to seat the primer in once-fired American hulls, as compared with Winchester and Remington STS 209's. Also checking some open box Winchester and Cheddites just now with a Starrett vernier micrometer ..... both measure .242" diameter plus/minus a tenth (.0001”) or so. I use the Cheddites for 4 loadings and then switch to Fiocchi 616's that are slightly oversize at .243" Starrett diameter for the last 3-4 loads before discarding the hulls. Yeah I know the Fiocchis are pretty much unobtainable nowadays.

Not so. I also have used Cheddites, maybe 40,000, and now for reasons have gone to Win primers and have no problems with primers falling out. Two of my old SxS hammer shotguns [1873 Remington and a Parker made sometime in the 1880s ] will pierce Cheddite primers but not Win primers. I don't feel like paying for new firing pins, so back to the Win's.
