CCI Small Rifle Primers #400 Without a primer, a cartridge is so much scrap metal. Richard Speer founded CCI to provide a steady source of component primers to reloaders. Primers were CCI’s first product, long before Mini-Mag™, Stinger® and our other well-known ammunition products. CCI primers are highly evolved products because they are continuously tested and improved. Today’s CCI primer is more sensitive, easier to seat, and more compatible with progressive and automated loading equipment than even before. CCI primers have always incorporated modern non-corrosive and non-mercuric initiator mixes. The standard line primers are the “bread-and-butter” of reloading, the most commonly called-for primers in reloading recipes. CCI standard primers are remarkably clean-burning, leaving primer pockets cleaner and extending the time between pocket cleaning. That’s a huge benefit for progressive reloaders. They are more sensitive and easier to seat than older CCI primers, and engineered for smooth feeding in automated equipment.

CCI standard primers are remarkably clean-burning, leaving primer pockets cleaner and extending the time between pocket cleaning. That’s a huge benefit for progressive reloaders. They are more sensitive and easier to seat than older CCI primers, and engineered for smooth feeding in automated equipment. Those CCI 400 primers will do nicely! If I get bored I’ll do the same tests on my loosey-goosey (allegedly) slam fire prone M1 Garand. Slam fires in AR’s are something to talk about if you drink coffee at gun shops but making sure never hurts.

In the course of talking to many shooters, it has become clear to me that the manufacturers of primers have done a less than adequate job of educating reloaders on the application of their primers. Everybody seems to realize that some primers are “hotter” than others and some seem to shoot better for them than others, but few reloaders know that primers have different pressure tolerances.
