IMHO, Hornady would not use the CCI BR4. While they are very consistent, they are no where as hot as the Rem 7 1/2 or WSR. The Federal GM205M is right behind the 7 1/2 and WSR in temperature. Any one of those would get it done. Not that the BR4 wouldn't, jut not as well.

In Theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In Practice, there is.

interesting on the primers.

wonder if its a different primer? or just a change in the priming compound color itself?

they've changed tip colors before for a special marketing product, so nothing would surprise me.

i'm sure the had to expect some pull down testing to happen out in the wild like this - so it wouldnt be too much of a shocker if someone said 'hey, lets have a little fun with the internet' 8-)

Lol could be!

They look to have completely different primer cups with the Black looking like a winchester. Not sure about the custom ammo with red material and the flatter looking cup.
