The Cochise County Explorer Top Gun law enforcement match is coming up middle of April and me and another MP are going to enter.

or are they just set at different heights? I only see small & large primers in the catalogs. I am a newbie at this stuff.

of material in them. Larger powder charges need a larger initial spark and shock to shake up and ignite the powder. I haven't measured the physical dimensions of different primers, I just stay with what the loading manuals say. i know it can cause fluctuations in chamber pressures to use different primer sizes, and those can be dangerous changes. I usually buy my primers in 1000 pc bricks so I know I don't have to worry about different primers being a problem with consistency.

I've read about seating depth, but it's something I've never measured. I use the lee auto prime, the hand held squeeze primer, and I can fel when a primer has seated. I doubt I'll ever use anything else, because I've seen too many problems with high volume shooters having primers loaded backwards or not seated fully.
