Hey Everyone...

I started a thread on this earlier in the week, but decided to post new hoping to get some opinions.

I have been using CCI 400's for my small rifle primers, but have had difficulty finding them as of late. I got a call from a friend in a local shop today saying he had just got in a few CCI BR-4's, and asked if I wanted them. I told him yes, and went over to pick them up. I only bought 1000 (that's all he had), but wanted to know if I should start out low on my charges and work my way up again..?? CCI says that I can use the same data as the 400's, but I wanted to hear from some of you guys as to what you thought...

Hello..... I see the assassins have failed..

If you have a chrony, load up about 5-10 with a known load and test the theory. I would imagine that they would be very close. Good luck and stay safe.

CCI-400s and BR-4s are supposed to be exactly the same primer and directly interchangeable.

The BR-4s were introduced, many years ago, as super-uniform equivalents that would help eliminate sorting primers for precision loads, like benchrest loads. BR-4s were made by a select group of employees that had excellent track records for producting consistent products. They were made in special off-schedule runs and only in small lots, mostly by hand.

Not to worry.
