It also matters what cartridge you are using them in???
I would guess in a 45 ACP it makes more of a difference than in say a 45 Colt.
I would be using them in .44 magnum loads primarily with unique and 240gr hard cast SWC. I do have H110 and Lil'gun available along with jacketed bullets so the magnum primers will not go unused but I may try a few moderate say 8.5gr unique loads and see what occurs. Even if it does raise pressures a bit I am way down from max now. It is possible that the magnum primers may help to seal the bore and reduce leading. (Well I can hope).
