Default Primer size

I am going tp reload some 45/70 for my 1873 Trapdoor and have a box of Winchester No. WLR Large Rifle Primers Standard rifle loads. Would theses be the proper primers with the proper powder and load level?

I use standard large rifle primers in my 45/70 loads. Have used CCI 200 so far but would use the WLR primers if I run out of the CCIs.

I've been loading 45/70 with WLR primers for the past couple of years (probably ~200 rounds for my trapdoor and ~60 for my Marlin 1895). No issues so far.

Any large rifle primer will work.
