So, they're taller or longer? ;)

Depends on if you're laying down or standing up.

Yesterday I loaded a dozen or so LRP in 45 Colt brass.  I used 8 different brass manufactures.  All of them allowed the cylinders to spin freely in my New Vaqueros.

I did make sure the primer pockets were clean.

The primers were not proud in the casing, flush is what I'd say.

This morning I test fired them, worked like a charm!

I used the same Cowboy load I've been using for years.

 

Round 'em up!

what was the brand on your lrps.

If the LRP primers don't fit flush the first time, you can just hammer them in. :lol:

 

Should I use a brass hammer?

Howdy Taos: there is no legal problem getting Large or small pistol primers or rifle primers in Canada.

Stock-outs are another matter.

I'll have to try a few LRPs in my .45 Colt loads to see what results I get with them in Starline, Winchester and Remington cases since I have several thousand LRPs I picked up when LeBaron went out of business.

I did learn my excess Small Rifle Primers could be used in my pistol cases, so I'll have to load some 9mm and .38spl. for a trial.

Good luck and think Cowboy Action Shooting for 2021!
