    You wish! Hell, I wish!

    I topped up with a few these Ginex primers. In the past, my revolvers wouldn't set them off reliably (that's my personal Federal comparison) but YMMV. Other than that they should be GTG. There was 88K when I ordered yesterday and now there's only 12K (but they may have more in the back).

    I've found that the CamPro HBWC for .357/38spl are definitely smaller in diameter than the other bullets of this style I have used. The CamPro ones tend to sink into the case if I'm not careful while reloading.

    No they are hard and most revolvers won’t set them off

    Other important question is: were they the same as the calibre packaging they were packed in?

    A few years back, a box of .45 ACP had a few .38's and .40's in it, 6 or so out of 500 and the significant size difference stood out by feel since it was the only ammo I used to reload at the time. They pack by weight and I ended up short by a few projectiles to finish my batch out of that box, but the extra here and there from previous batches made up the difference.

    Aside from that packaging issue, I have never had any trouble out of the thousands I've gone through so far.

    What were your caliper measurements?

    I didn't write my caliper measurements down, just noted that they were smaller than the majority in the bag. And I do stand corrected, they were two bags of 1000, not 500, 9mm and 38sp. Another CGNer made a good point....perhaps some other calibres got mixed in as they were both round nose. i didn't mix any up, that's for certain, and didn't think to measure for that. I have never had this issue with 9mm hp Campros but like one other CGNer in this string, did have to be careful with the Campro 38sp wadcutters to keep them from slipping down. They are a tad narrow compared to my hard lead wadcutters. And wow, are reloading supplies getting harder to find now!!

    This is normal. Lead bullets have a tight fit in the bore to reduce/prevent leading up your barrel.

    General information; Cowboy shooters (SASS) in the USA almost all use Federal small pistol primes, NONE to be found for them anymore.
    SO, put in strong hammer springs and use what you find.

    Or find a local guy with lots of Federal SPP and trade him for nice SRP primers (CCI 450, Fed Match).
