Primers for 209 shotshells, including those that work with muzzleloaders and blackhorn 209 powder, are now available. You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for a primer that will set your work apart from the rest. Primers in shotguns allow for the adjustment of velocity for a given load. CCI, Cheddite, Remington, Winchester, Rio, Federal, and Fiocchi are, in order of increasing power, the least powerful to the most. What constitutes a significant level of variance is mostly determined by the powder used. Primers may make a big difference for certain powders but not others. Primers for shot shells vary in size according on the manufacturer…. A size comparison chart is shown below.

The data clearly show that not all shotshell primers are created equal. Recent Hodgdon material is another notable exception; it states that the NobelSport 209 priming may be securely swapped for the Winchester 209. (The emphasis here is on “safely,” not on “ballistics being equal.”) Several formulations for shotshell primers produce varying levels of “strength.” Primers can be ranked in terms of their relative strengths using one formula, but the rankings will almost likely shift when using a different recipe.

The Nobel 209 family has low (684), medium (686), and high (688) power levels. Without a doubt, the 686 is the most typical. Replace Winchester 209s with them without worry. Primers’ varying degrees of effectiveness are directly related to the various propellants to which they are applied.

When combined with Alliant’s propellants, they are, according to the company, a drop-in replacement for Rem. 209s.
