Default Winchester WSP for .357 ?????

Anyone know if a moderately light load with Unique in a .357 mag case and 158 gr. copper coated HPs will give me any problems?
I usually use CCI 500 but don't seem to have any right now. I looked at the Winchester site and about all the data they have about the WSP primers is that they exist.
Having never used Winchester primers before, I'd appreciate some input before I load up a batch of squibs.
Thanks.

I use CCI 500 and WSP interchangably.

Thanks Bill. I suspected they were about the same but wanted to hear someone else say it.

Pretty much across the board, substituting another brand of the same type of primer is safe. Many substitute magnum for regular as well. If I am stuck only with magnum primers, or I want to try them for a specific purpose in a load I normally would load regular, I always rework-up the load from start levels.

The most obvious exception is shotshell loading where you really want to stick to the primer brand and type specified in the receipe. Even in this case some guys substitute brands, but they usually do it only after years of experience and intimate knowledge of the various primers characteristics and the powder, wads and payload they are loading.
