I see some of you do not use mag primers when loading 296 and H 110. for 454 Casull loads.Is this because it is a rifle primer?I know with pistol primers I always use a mag primer with 296/110.Just dont wont any squibs.

I've had good results with Remington 7 1/2, CCI 400 and Federal 200 primers in .454 Casull. All give great accuracy, low extreme spreads and good velocity. My favorite is Rem 7 1/2. CCI 450 magnum small rifle primers have not improved any aspect of my .454 loads.

When I had a 454, I used 30+ grains of 296 and a cci small rifle primer. I never had any issues of squib loads. I'll admit, I didn't really do any cold weather hunting; coldest temperatures I had it out in and shot was 15-20 degrees F.

I've used both standard and magnum primers in the Casull, with consistent results and very little difference in velocity. Accuracy does not appear to change between brands or types of primers.
