Large Rifle Primers/Which one do you use?

Which Large Rifle Primers do you like and use in non-magnum rifle loading? Why?
I like CCi-200s because i have used them for ever and my loads are built with them. Second was Winchesters until they changed them from Chrome to just brass. They are different now,IMHO.

All depends on the gun. Currently I use CCI, Federal and Winchester. Some rifles get match primers, some get standard. I also use plenty of magnum primers in non magnum chamberings.

Everything from 25/06 to .338 win mag and dozens of cartridges in the middle get Remington 9 1/2 magnum primers..22/250 gets W/W LR, best groups by far...PPC's & BR get Fed 205 match...that's it !

I use CCI, Winchester and Federal in that order. They all perform well for me.

Whichever brand and variety gives the best overall performance in a given load.

I use winchester, cci and federal depending on the load. I would really like to try S&B large rifle primers. I've read a few articles about their conisistency and low standard deviation.

Winchesters right now. Several years ago I came across a case of Remington 9 1/2 primers from 1956. They were in tiny individual wooden boxes wrapped in white cardboard. They're all shot off now. Accuracy was fine and I never had a single misfire.

Mostly use cci being my uncle had a bunch and I inherited them. Use winchester in my 06 and 338-06 because for some reason it likes them better.
