    question about Federal 210 primers

    what's the difference between 210 and 210M? Their site just list the 210M as the GMM product, and the 210 as the Champion product. Any difference in performance?

    Match primers are held to closer tolerances and usually have different burn (flame) characteristics.

    Some people will only use match primers and others say there is no real difference. The only real way to tell, it to handload and test them for yourself.

    Ya that's what I thought. A couple weeks ago I got 1k 210's from Cabela's, no 210M's in stock anywhere I can find. I've just been wondering if there's really much difference. I've read people posting that amongst a relatively large group of options, the primer is probably the component with least impact on performance.

    No difference in performance for me. I couldn't find the 210Ms so I bought 1000 210s in a pinch and they gave me the same velocity, accuracy and spreads and saved me money.
