Remington Small Pistol Primers #5-1/2 Box of 1000 (10 Trays of 100)
Within every Remington primer is a group of subcomponents assembled to exceptionally tight tolerances. Primer cup dimensions are controlled to .0001″, and the priming mix is specially formulated for consistent ignition with a wide variety of powder types. Primers are tested for reliability from -20 degrees F to +150 degrees F. The unique tripod anvil design creates a larger strike area with maximum sensitivity, even with off center firing pin strikes.

Used for 38 super & 9mm loads in 1911 pistols and had no misfires. These primers seat and feed in my Dillon press with no problems. I did have a few misfires in my 38 special loads used in a s&w 686. These primers may be a little to hard for revolvers with action work done to the triggers. I will buy this product again for my auto pistols.

These work well enough, though they don’t load as easily or as well as others. First, they are a “tall” primer which means they don’t give as much room to the loader in an auto-indexing press (I use a Dillon). This has not caused an issue for me yet, but that’s probably because I noticed the difference and have taken appropriate care when loading (I have slowed WAY down during the seating stage so as to avoid rolling the primers in the auto indexer and to avoid crushing the primer by trying to seat it before the case and primer pocket are in position). Two, they seem smaller in gauge relative to other primers. I have had a few fail to stay in the case after having been seated. The only way I’ve been able to counter this is to seat them with more pressure (essentially forcing them to slightly expand into the primer pocket’s wall, so as to create the effect of a primer crimp).I will probably not get more of these since I have had none of these same issues with CCI, Winchester or Federal.

After reloading a 100 rounds with these I happened to read some reviews on these because I knew I would need more primers in a while and wanted to check out what I was currently using. I happened on a review that said listed in the warning on the side of carton these were not to be used for 40 cal s and w, when I looked I saw the same thing, thankful of the warning, disappointed that it wasn’t stated anywhere on line and only on side of carton, won’t buy these again.

These primers worked fine I load 9mm. I had no issue and for me its a very good product. I shoot a CZ 75B..
John Dunn –
I was very pleased with the quality and would buy more. I had no misfires with the use of these primers.

These primers worked fine in my Ruger GP100. After about 500 rounds I noticed a warning on the box-“Do not use in high intensity pistols such as 357 mag, 357 Sig, 40 S&W…damage… serious injury. Use 5-1/2 for these. Seems backward to me.
Oscar Sanchez –
These are pricey but if you can stand the inflated price these are great. They aren’t recommended for heavy loads but work great in my “match” 40 loads. What I especially like about these primers is that 5000 of these take up a lot less space than the others. My primer cabinet isn’t that big and these take up the least space.
Adrian Aguilar –
I give these primers 4 stars because they are a little soft and can deform in my hand primer if they are not dead center. As far as the product itself – they work great. I shot 2000+ rounds a week (Cowboy action and range pistol) I uses these primers in .38 specials, .357 mag, 9MM and .32 S&W Long. Once loaded – all go bang. I seem to have less powder residue with these primes too.
Trent Nail –
These are hard primers. I have had a 3 percent misfire rate. This is too high for a self defense load. They may be OK for casual practice. I will not use them again.
Calvin Samaj Jackson –
Be aware of these Primers. I would suggest contacting Remington before using them for .40 S&W Loading Runs. They are stating on their boxes and their website these are not recommended for use in .40 S&W, .357 Magnum or .357 Sig.This is most troubling since .357 Sig and the .40 S&W are not considered Magnum Cartridges. This information seems in error. I have posted a query on their website and am awaiting a response. If Midway will permit me, I would like to post their comments here for customer review.
Trent Johnson –
I have used Remington primers scene 1987 because I load on a Dillon press and I was using CCI primers and they would crush. The Remington being brass did not crush when feed through a Dillon press
Billy D Williams –
I have used these for many years, never had a failure of any type. The 5 1/2 work best in 40 S&W and 357 Mag. They have a “smell” all their on when you shoot them! My only gripe is the packaging! I wish they were packed like CCI and Winchester. They will spill out very easy.. ask me how I know!!
Pablo Garcia –
Ran out of my usual CCI primers so I bought 500 remington 1-1/2 primers to reload 9mm. Out of every 50-75 rounds i experienced a misfire. Saw a good deep firing pin strike but no boom. I’ve had 100% reliability using winchester & CCI’s as well as 100% reliability using factory ammo out of my m&p 9mm, not so much with Remington. That and you can’t use it for .40s&w are my reasons why I won’t use these again.
Alexis Menodza –
I bought these Remington primers because my usual supplier ran out of CCI small pistol primers and after priming 250 cases I saw in the smallest legal print I have ever tried to see stating in the little green area on the box that these are not to be used in 357 mag, 357 sig or 40 s&w. I read that the cup is too thin and can burn through when fired and burn the breech face and destroy your firing pins. I will never use Remington products again!
Amanda Scott –
Finally found one that works well in my DW 715. Nice for 38+P using Mag brass. Just be sure they are seated all the way in.
Catrina Rosas –
Very consistent ignition with a variety of powders.
Damion Calhoun –
I reload my own pistol ammo, and have been using the Remington primers for years, never had any problem with them.
Tino Herrera –
Always fire with even the lightest of strikes, no better performance accuracy wise but with lighter springs in some of my revolvers they have proven the best,
Remon Jones –
These are great primers. They have been more reliable for me than the CCI primers I normally use.
Chris Antoine –
We use a lot of Remington’s small pistol primers # 1 1/2. The accuracy in ammo using them as well as uniformity over the chronograph remain top notch!
Tera Poles –
I shoot both 22 Hornet and K-Hornet. I have tried both rifle and pistol primers to determine the best loading and have concluded that Rem. 61/2 primers are ideal in both calibers. I could see no advantage to the much-touted pistol primers in these calibers over the Rems. These primers are just mild enough to fit the bill and with 1680 powder produce the best accuracy.
