Default CCI primers

It looks like CCI changed the names on primers . I used to look for 200 250 etc .
My nephews called and said they were at store but the numbers I gave them were wrong .
Large rifle is now BR 2 . Is there a conversion chart somewhere ?

BR-2 is the bench rest or match grade of the large rifle.
They are excellent but not a mag primer if that is what you are looking for

At some point cci took "bench rest" off the box so it is easy to mistake br-4s for 400s and br-2s for 200s since they just say "large rifle primers br-2" and omitted the bold "bench rest" lettering. I have boxes with both and from a glance, it is easy to mistake them. Regardless, it's the same primer and from the sound of it, not what you are looking for.

I guess I'm probably not making it very easy to understand so in a nutshell, both 200s and br-2s will say "large rifle primer" but the number is what distinguishes them from each other. 200s are still standard and br-2 are still bench rest. The boxes are somewhat misleading if you don't already know what the br-2 stands for.

It will say mag on the packaging and be a different number than standard primers.
