    I'm considering buying up a bunch of small rifle primers to substitute for small pistol in my M40, I've done this in a tokarev with good results on a medium load I had.

    The average M40 striker have enough sauce to crush the harder cup against the anvil?

    What kind of load you running for the m40. Im using tightgroup and xtream bullets, cause of the price. Accuracy is totally acceptable. But im always interested in what others come up with

    titegroup is good and accurate. though I have used unique,wsf,universal and longshot.
    would stick with titegroup though its cheap and works well.

    Ya. Titegroup is great. Ive been experimenting with red dot lately cause i have a lot of it, had some good results. Its a lower priced, always available option. At least where i live anyway like the tightgroup
