PostSubject: Primer "hotness"   February 6th 2015, 3:04 pm

I know FG has a comprehensive chart on primer lengths, but has anyone done a comparison on the "hotness" of the various primers??

It's my general understanding that the CCI Mag 209s are likely the hottest, and the Fed 209s right behind them, but I'm not sure about any of the others.

I generally use the Fiocchi 616 in my BH209 guns and the Win 209s in my SMLs.

Bridges or Wakeman had a chart with FPS but no one has ever measured the actual heat such and such primer produces.

Per thread at another ML website/messageboard.

Shotgun Primers

Winchester 209ML ........................221 f.p.s.
Winchester 209 Triple Seven ML......244 f.p.s.
Remington 209 Kleanbore ML .........318 f.p.s.
Std. Winchester No. W209A ...........336 f.p.s.
Remington STS.............................338 f.p.s.
Std. Remington No. 209 ................341 f.p.s.
Cheddite No. 209 .........................347 f.p.s.
CCI 209M.....................................379 f.p.s.
Federal No. 209A ..........................381 f.p.s.

Test was from a 50 cal ML shooting a measured projectile only through a chrono. The unknown projectile was the same  for every primer tested.

Interesting, thanks!

This is a force measure ment, not a high temp or temp "volume", but I would think there was some correlation.

I wonder where my Fiocchi 616's would be?
