Brass 12g shotgun cartridges.


Recommended Posts

Hi I need to load some brass cartridges and I believe they take a small pistol primer! Does anyone know the diameter of a small pistol primer please. Not the outer rim but the bit that pushes into the cartridge. I know that standard shotgun primers are are around 6.1mm

0.212" max is says online, which is 5.3848mm. Just measured my CCI 300s and they come in at 5.35mm

 

Edit to add, I'm not sure what you mean by "Not the outer rim but the bit that pushes into the cartridge" as the whole primer will push flush to the brass case.

Yep thanks a lot. not much difference then. I did mean the outer flange and I appreciate that it sits flush.
