Primers - Large Rifle or Large Rifle Magnum for 1876 cartridges?
I'm asking this question as I am pretty well set up for Large Rifle Magnum primers but I don't have very many Large Rifle primers.
Thoughts?  My loads are black powder

For me and my very limited Black Powder experience, I use the CCI magnum primers. For smokeless powder I use Winchester regulars.

I certainly don't think magnum ones are needed for BP but I don't see where they hurt either. I've used them before, can't tell the difference in BP loads.

I've been using standard LR primers in my 45-60 loaded with AA5744 at what I would guess to be about 50% case fill. Ive had zero issues with it and my velocities over the chrony are very consistent.

I cant see why a mag primer would cause any issues

standard Large Rifle are plenty good enough for blackpowder but if you have plenty of the magnums ? may as well use them - you wont break anything. If accuracy holds up its all good.
