Where do you Fort Worth folks buy primers?

Need Federal 215's and no one has them. Ordering them is expensive as hell due to HazMat fee.

Thanks,

For your 7 Mag, the Federal 215 and Remington 9 1/2 M primers are the 2 hottest primers. A CCI #250 would also work, but is slightly less hot. A standard primer will "work", but I would recommend a magnum primer with a slower burning powder. I know shooters who use a standard primer for their magnum cases, and they work fine.

if you change primers you have to run a 20/5 shot group ladder test to find a new load

sorry but that's the only way to find your NODE

Just to clarify,,,the Rem primers seat softer than the Federal and CCI primers. The brass pockets were still tight with other primers except Rem primers. I think the Rem primer diameter is a little smaller if I am not mistaken.

I just feel a lot less pressure when seating Rem primers, does anyone else feel the same?
