I have a bunch of Rem. Primers taken from plastic base 10 ga. Rem. SP hulls some years ago (bought from precision reloading). I was told these were Rem. 209P primers. I was later advised that I should not assume that they are 209Ps. Can anyone shead some lite on this? Did Rem. use a different primer in some of their factory loads or primed hulls?

The factory primer is not the same as the one that can be bought OTC by consumers. A reliable source in the business verifies that Remington matches its primers to the powder and wad used in each load. The commercially available primer is different.

Those are definitely not 209P's or any other primer that Remington sells or sold over the counter. They are fairly hot, to ignite the slow rate powders. I worked at Precision back when those hulls were sold.

Gest has it right.

Like dogchaser37 stated, those are pretty hot primers, and definitely not the same as 209P's.

However, that doesn't preclude their use. Were it me, I would pick a load such as the 1 oz. Clays load listed in Hodgdons book. It lists using a Federal 209A primer with 16.9 grs. Clays and a WAASL wad in a AA case giving 1180 FPS and 9,000 PSI chamber pressure.

That 209A primer is one of the hottest primers available, so using those Rem. primers instead of the Federals, in a relatively mild load to start with, would not be a problem.

However, using them in higher pressure loads, and replacing them for a milder primer would not be prudent.

Thanks. DLM's solution sounds like a good way to use them up.
