Primers/White Hot Pellets

Please respond only if you can answer these question:

Can you use "magnum" 209 shotshell primers with these as opposed to "regular" primers ?

If not "White Hots", then with any other pelletized powder? 

I E-mailed the company two times over the last month and get no reply.

Thank you.

I cannot answer your question exactly, but can tell you I used Winchester Triple Seven primers with White Hots this past season - and experienced way too many misfires.

I need to switch to a new primer, just not sure which one?

edited - apologies I just reread your original post and see you only wanted answers to those questions.  Not sure how to delete my post, though what I shared may still be helpful to someone.

No problem. You are answering my question indirectly. 

Thanks.

I have stayed away from the "muzzleloader" primers, as they are the least hot. There are 3 209 primers considered to be Magnum (hot) federal 209a, cci Magnum, & winchester w209. I have had good luck w the winchester primers. I also find that tight fitting bullets is paramount for accuracy. Furthermore, depending on gun...try o-rings around primer to eliminate ALL blowback from the primer.

Can you be more specific about the primer 0-ring? So, I it seems that you think CCI Magnum primers will have no negative effects with White Hots?

Gas escapes from only two possible places....muzzle or breech. So, tight fitting bullet stops leaks at muzzle. At breech can have blowback...gases escaping around primer. A few ways to correct this. Mind you, depends on gun. If it is a tc omega or CVa  you can put o ring on primer to eliminate blow back. Most importantly, trial and error...try a few primers. Should not be black on face of primer, means blowback. You can put o ring on primer.
