    Out of my 26" 6.5PRC I was loading 59.5grs of Re#25 with Rem 9 1/2 LRP and getting bug holes and average velocity of 3,3030 pushing 140gr ELDs . Then started using Fed 210 Match primers behind 59grs of Re#25 and I averaged 100 FPS faster and same bug hole groups.Are fed primers the hottest primers out there ?

    To answer your question. Fed 215 primers are the hottest out there for large rifle primers.

    Rem 9 1/2 I believe are at the bottom in brisance while the Federal 210M is about the middle. But getting that much more velocity with a primer change is alarming. As like anything else we do in reloading every rifle is different and every load is different. That's why it's important to start at a moderate load.
