I have some Lil Gun that I want to try in 41 Mag, 44 Mag, and 45 Colt and I am not sure what primer to use. What is everyone else using successfully?

If you have a single shot or 300BO and want to use LIL Gun you do not need magnum primers. As a matter of fact, Speer recommends using a pistol primer in the 22 Hornet.

In a revolver find something else. And for the calibers you have listed, definitely choose other powders.

I have yet to use lil gun in a revolver ( can't find it locally), but most reloading manuals say to use a magnum primer for the calibers you have listed.
