CCI Primers - Our primers are highly evolved products because we continuously test and improve. 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. In addition to our standard rifle, pistol and shotshell primers, we offer Magnum primers, benchrest primers, and primers with mil-spec sensitivity for reloading military-style semi-auto rifles. We also make an excellent line of percussion caps for muzzleloading enthusiasts, and primers for the 50 BMG cartridge.Our primer expertise extends beyond small arms. We are a major supplier of initiators for medium-caliber automatic cannons used by the United States Armed Forces. We offer the best selection of component primers in the industry, so you have the flexibility to get the best performance from your handloads.
Meets majority of reloading needs
As reliable as you can get
I have used thousands of large and small pistol CCI primers. Several hundred large rifle. NEVER had a misfire. These seat more uniformly than any other brand I have tried and I have tried them all. The only dud I have ever had was from one of the other "leading brands". Reloaded for over 25 years. Recently fired some ammo with CCI primers loaded in 1992. No duds there either. With proper storage they can last indefinitely.
I used these primers in my 223, 9mm, 7-08, 308, and in my shotgun loads. NEVER a single failure and I'm talking thousands and thousands of rounds. I have thousands of these primers in my reloading room right now. Matter of fact its the only primers I have on my bench right now. Buy these primers with confidence.
I've used these since I first got into reloading when I was a kid. Most of the primers I have used were old leftovers from the 80's but quite a few current as well and I've had a lot of problems with them in small pistol and large pistol version. Large rifle has been fine. They've always seated hard, had numerous duds, usually about 1 every 50 or so. However this past year I tried some more and they do seat easier than the old ones and no duds so far. Definitely prefer Federal, Winchester or Remington primers. Never had ANY problems with those.

Great primers. I have used them for years.
I have used CCI Primers, large and small rifle, large and small pistol. Never had an issue with them. A while back had some pistol rounds hard to fire, but after doing tests, found it was due to light hammer strike and not the primers.
Nothing But The Best !!!
I have been using CCI primers exclusively for over 40 years and never, ever had any issues. To me and all of my cohorts agree, there is no better primer around. They just plain work, each and every time, no matter what.

I have used Omark products for over 30 years and as to CCI primers, I have never had a misfire, failure to seat or any negative result..... EVER. That's why I use them exclusively. .."PERIOD"
used for years
I have used CCI 200 (large rifle) for years now, and a few years ago started using CCI 400 (small rifle). I use hand priming tools to prime my brass. As long as the primer pocket is properly prepared (cleaned, crimp removed) and the flash hole inspected, I have never had problems inserting the primer. In shooting in many different temperatures, from -10F to 100F, I have never had a miss fire that was the fault of the primer. I also have noticed that at least in my experience, they have had excellent shelf life.
I've not had much luck with CCI. Numerous duds and quite a few issues seating them in the pockets. Never had these issues with the main brands that I use.
I have never experienced a problem with these primers using a RCBS primer press
