Winchester primers (Match) in red box?

Recommended Posts

I recently ordered several thousand Win LPM primers.  In the past, they were always in blue boxes and were brass plated.

Well, the boxes must've been opened and repacked...Because there are some red boxes called "Win Match LP" primers.  They are copper plated instead of brass plated.

Has anyone got any experience with them?

Bet it's a different metal. :huh:

IIRC, LP was for std and mag.

See if a magnet grabs'em.

Can you post a picture of these new bxs?

Std for the .45 acp case is LP.

There are SP .45acp cases out there also.

They load just fine ;)

Proud of them?  I take that to mean they are priced higher than normal.

Hi, here's the page from Powder Valley, https://www.powdervalleyinc.com/product-category/reloading-supplies/primers/?filter_brand=winchester&query_type_brand=or                      It shows both types of primers. The "Match" primers are about $5 more per thousand. Doesn't seem that much more but I don't see the point . regards, Mike
