Default Winchester Large Rifle Primers

Has anyone here used Winchester LRP for Garand ammo reloading? Opinions please?

Yep, work well.

I prefer the brand, but as of late they've been somewhat difficult to acquire. You'll have no problem working up an acceptable load with the brand........far as it goes, I cannot recall ever experiencing a misfire with any U.S. commercial primer.

Been using them for over 10 years. Never had a problem with them.

They work fine. So do the CCI200's.

My preferred primer for 30-06. Works well with surplus 4895 (I miss that), IMR-4895, and IMR-4064.

Many thousands of WLR and CCI 200s. Never a problem with either.
