    I tried Magtech small rifle primers on glock 17. Had a lot of misfires.

    I've done it before and am fixin' to do it again. Seems to work fine in a hammer-fired pistol, and most factory guns. Stuff that's been tweaked with light springs or light firing pins may not work. Conventional wisdom is to reset your load development, but I saw negligible difference with Titegroup or Unique and WSP vs WSR primers. YMMV, all the usual caveats...

    then the numbers changed to 205's for Sm Rifle.


    I run rifle primers in several handgun platforms w/o issues.
