Primers are the small explosive charges that ignite the powder in a cartridge. The priming compound inside of a primer is sensitive to impact, so it only takes a light tap to set off the charge. Primers can be classified as small rifle magnum primings or large rifle magnum primings. The difference between them is not just size, but also type of explosive used and how much energy they need to ignite the powder in a cartridge. Large rifle magnum primings use more powerful explosives than small rifle magnum primings, which means they can withstand more force before igniting and will not be accidentally set off by bumps or other impacts. Large rifle magnum primings are also less sensitive to moisture and will work better in humid environments than their smaller counterparts. .Small rifle magnum primings are less powerful than large rifle magnum primings, which means they can be set off with a light tap. They will not work as well in humid environments and are more prone to accidentally being set off by bumps or other impacts.

The Three Types of Large Rifle Magnum Primers

There are three types of large rifle magnum primers: large pistol, small rifle, and large rifle. Each type has its own unique characteristics that make it better suited for certain applications.

Large pistol magnum primers are typically used in high-powered handguns and are designed to withstand the higher pressures generated by these types of firearms. Small rifle magnum primers are typically used in lower-powered rifles and are designed to provide more consistent ignition at lower temperatures. Large rifle magnum primers are typically used in high-powered rifles and are designed to provide more consistent ignition at higher temperatures.
