    Saw these on the internet and noticed these are almost half the price of the CCI's I usually buy! I have fired 10's of thousands of rounds of Wolf ammo and have never had a hang fire or failure to fire due to ammunition.

    Anyone using these?

    I would be interested in using the primers for bulk ammo......

    Looks like you have to add HazMat $20 and shipping.

    Well sure you do - but if I buy 5-10K of primers, you MORE than make up for that.......

    Course, it all depends on if these primers are worth a damn or not - I'm kinda stuck on CCI myself....

    I use CCI also and do have a plentiful supply.

    I have shot Wolff ammo before with no problems.

    Dunno if their primers will go bang every time or if there are other issues........

    Let's see if others have any experience....

    Well, that's not a bad price, even with hazmat and shipping. But... I've been using Magtech primers for a couple of years now in both Large and small pistol. SW Ammo in Mesquite sells them at the local gun shows for $22 per 1k. A few months ago I bought 5k large and 5k small from them for $20 per 1k.

    The Magtech primers are as good as CCI and better than Winchester, in my opinion.

    I do not use Winchesters simply because they are on the soft side and I reload for military weapons.
