CCI® Centrefire 50 BMG Primers #35, Box of 1,000
CCI primers are highly evolved products because they continuously test and improve. Today's CCI primer is more sensitive, easier to seat, and more compatible with progressive and automated loading equipment than even before. CCI primers have always incorporated modern non-corrosive and non-mercuric initiator mixes.
In addition to their standard rifle, pistol and shotshell primers, CCI offer Magnum primers, benchrest primers, and primers with mil-spec sensitivity for reloading military-style semi-auto rifles. CCI also make an excellent line of percussion caps for muzzle loading enthusiasts, and primers for the 50 BMG cartridge.
These are the “bread-and-butter” of reloading, the most commonly called-for primers in reloading recipes. CCI standard primers are remarkably clean-burning, leaving primer pockets cleaner and extending the time between pocket cleaning. That’s a huge benefit for progressive reloaders. They are more sensitive and easier to seat than older CCI primers, and engineered for smooth feeding in automated equipment.
The massive 50 calibre BMG cartridge has successfully made the move to the sporting arena as a long-range target cartridge. Surplus cases and bullets are relatively plentiful, but the big primer was harder to find. Once again, CCI came to the rescue. Their No. 35 is designed expressly for the 50 BMG and gives the power needed to ignite the massive propellant charges this cartridge requires.
