Are NobleSport Primers regular size, or are they larger? I have a chance to buy about 10,000 at a good price but, I have been using 616 Fiocchis and don't want to mess up a bunch of hulls.

They should fit fine in the hulls you had with Fio 616 primers.

They will not turn a mouses ear into a two-stall garage, but they will definitely enlarge the primer pocket on a hull that had a standard 209 primer. If you can buy them on the cheap do so...and use them wherever the recipe calls for a WW 209...so sayeth the sage of loading manuals. :lol:

I've never understood the problem with the whole "enlarged primer pocket" thing.

If you're buying 10,000 NobelSports, aren't the hulls going to be worn out before your supply of primers?

Not an issue!

Not an issue if you stay with Nobelsport consistently. However, if one goes from the larger primer to a smaller one then one can experience powder burn blowby past the primer to the face of the breech....as seen on the gun and the base of the hull. Not a good thing. Thus I use my Nobelsports in the same gun club hulls and avoid this issue. :roll:

Have yet to witness that, but if you insist, I will agree. But have you ever used a micrometer on a bunch of Nobel Sport primers? You should, Oh, and measure some WW 209 while you are busy. I have.

You can fill in the data on the Nobel Sports after you gather it.

I routinely switch back and forth between Fiocchis and NobelSports in AAHS and Remington hulls and they both seat firmly.

After either, you can almost seat a W209 primer all the way with your fingers.

Just stick to the Fiocchis and NobelSports and you'll have no problem.

I have several cases of W209s but I haven't used them in ages.

I'm saving them to place as artifacts in a museum.

Curly. First off...Merry Christmas. Secondly, I do not have nor do I use a Micrometer but I could borrow one from my Millwright older brother. Even then, I doubt if I would use it to measure primers. My statements are based on observation and experience...not measurments....not to discount the latter..However, Case states my answer quite well in his post on this matter. :)
