    Anyone ever sub Small rifle primers for small pistol primers? -Reduce the charge 10% but light strikes?

    I haven't, but it might work.
    LR primers are taller that LP primers, but I think the smalls are both the same size.
    Try a couple in empty casings in the basement when no one is home.
    If they go off, should be alright, in a pinch.

    Let us know how it works... I'm in the same place where I'm very tempted to try to sub SP for SR.

    I loaded 50 rounds of 9 mil with 4.3g of Hodgson Tite group, 115g copper jacket, max COAL,using the small rifle primers. Ave vel. ~1115, no issues, but cartridges were very sooty.Shot about the same as the factory loads I was using.
