CCI #34 primers

(1/1)

waynemclark:
Anybody use the CCI #34 military type primers in reloading for M1 Garands, M1A's etc?  Some say they are not neccessary.  Any opinions?

I shot the M-1A for years, loaded thousands of rounds with Winchester LR and never a problem. Does this mean one can"t occur, absolutely not. Reloading is never 100% one way verse another. They say a M-1A will not fire out of battery however I have personally witnessed it and observed the rear of the receiver obliterated. The CCI 34 is a Magnum primer so load accordingly. If slam-fires are your concern there are several other factors to consider detailed on CCIs web site. www.cci-ammunition.com/products/primers/primers_prod.aspx?id=30

bustedknuckles:
34's not necessary, they have harder cup for floating firing pins and they are hot primers, i drop powder charge .5gr when using them. they are best for ball powder. no different accuracy than any other non br primer.
