The small issue of primers

With reference to your Top Shots question on small pistol primers being replaced by small rifle primers (Australian Shooter, November 2018), I have used No. 7½ small rifle primers in my Walther .32 S&W L for two years due to the surplus primers I had and the increased price of pistol primers. I’ve had no misfires or problems with target loads and find they can be substituted as long as you’re not using maximum loads.
