    Has anyone here used them I was able to order 5k for $206.00 including haz mat. Was curious how they compared to win 209. With the primer shortage going on I figure any primer is better than no primer

    Right now if you find any primers at all you better jump on them.

    I think they might be a slightly different dimension. Like Rios or something. I think they will work with European hulls, but I might be wrong.

    Yep you're Right ! As long as you use these in a Euro Hull and (I believe, don't quote me ) treat them as a Win primer they work fine !
    I've used them in Blue Rio Hulls for clay targets with no issues ! I really liked those Wolf hulls especially in 28 ga .

    I haven't used them. Just seem to remember reading that before. Similar to Winchester pressures I believe, but slightly off on O.D.

    Where were you able to order them? I’m expecting components to become more avail in the “off season”.
