Default What primers to use in 6.5x55 for Ljungman?

Looking into loading for my Swedish Ljungman. Ive been reading that I should use "milspec" LR primers but not sure which primers are "milspec". Ive been using Sellier and Bellot LR primers for 30-06 (Garand and 1903) and 8mm Mauser (3 different K98's). Are the S&B primers usable or should I get a different primer for the Ljungman? Dont want slam fires!

If the rifle has a floating firing pin, the #34 is the way to go but it is a hot primer, similar to a magnum. I've never had issues using them but I almost never load near max.

I use Winchester primers in mine with no problems. CCI is fine too. Just avoid federal.
