The absolutely best primers are any of the ones you can find on the shelves . . .

My one experience was ~6 years back and they were excellent.  Since Covid and paying people to not work???
I would not be surprised if they are having trouble finding enough workers to ensure a quick turnaround.

What's with this newfangled dash instead of just a W.C.F.?
Too many caps and periods.  ;D

I believe the consensus is that Federal primers are the "softest".  You can almost judge by the packaging!

What is the preferred primer brand for use with a reduced power mainspring in a Ruger Blackhawk ?  For large pistol as well as small pistol.  Thanks, Jerry

Well, been a bit busy here the last few days. Pretty weather, if I could get the back to quit growling, I would enjoy it more. I carried a 642 for many years as my pocket gun. Got talked out of it by a Williamson County Detective some years ago. Today my always gun is a Ruger LCP2 in .380 with the 7 round magazine, what a great little gun. Got my Sunday School lesson ready for tomorrow. May God bless you all, my friends.

Your 642 Lightweight Alloy Frame @ 14.6 oz is about 5 oz lighter than my nickel 36 @ 19.6 oz.
That's big in the CCw world.
But the 36 is only an oz heaver that my Sig 365 @ 18.5 oz so I'm use to the feel.
After 2 broken FP's in the Sig I had lost confidence. 

I keep my eyes open for a 642 Lightweight on the secondary market, but the seldom if ever show up,
in the consignment case  >:(

Hello, Erikamills18:

I suggest you contact Buffalo Arms in Ponderay, ID at 208-263-6953.
They will know what is currently compatable.  Over many years, I have found company literature indicating a particular hand priming tool was suitable, especially "universal" ones, to be incorrect. 

There have been some semi-custom re-de capping hand tools, but they are out of production.  I use one from Meecham Tool, who is out of business.  It takes CH4D shellholer #57, which is for the 50 Sharps and 50 Spencer cases. There will be some wiggle room in all of them to accommodate minor variations in rim OD and thickness. Please let us know what you learn.  Thanks. Smiles.
