    The article in UK Target Shooter is back online now:
    Small Rifle Primer Performance Pt 3 by Laurie Holland | Target Shooter Magazine

    He tests a number of SR primers in 308 Palma brass, including several mentioned here: CCI 450, Federal 205 & match, Murom and BR4. His main outcome statistic was consistent muzzle velocity and he tests a couple of big loads looking for cratering and hard to ignite powder (CFE223). A fairly thorough testfire really, with some unexpected results.

    I also use Federal Premium Match Small Rifle Primers in Lapua Palma brass with 2208 for 308s 155 gr & 185 gr projectiles.
    Can't recall any misfires, use about 4000 primers a season.
