What are CCI 200 primers used for?
Two types of primer have been competing to be the “best” primer for glue guns. The competition continues until someone figures out which one works better. Recently CCI 200 primers have been gaining some ground. They have proven to be more durable than the traditional wool or cotton primers, and they cost less than the traditional wool primers. The winner is…who will win the battle between wool and cotton?
I am not a professional on anything, but I do know what standard primers are supposed to do. So let’s assume that standard primers work on CCI 200 primers. When you buy these CCI 200 primers, don’t assume that they will work on your gun. Ask your sales rep to show you the proper primers that should be used on your machine.
If you are using a CCI pistol with a standard primer, then your CCI 200 primers should be compatible. The out-of-battery discharge method is not supposed to work on standard primers because it will not create an internal pull to force the primer out of the bbs. The best way to explain this is that the primer is designed to work loose in a compressed space. When the primer works loose, the air cylinder expands and the primer pops out. This is why standard primers won’t work on an AEG with an AEG disconnect kit, or on any AEG with a push button.

The best comparison that can be made is the PMR vs 200 primers debate. Both of these primers have their advantages, and both of them have disadvantages. For instance, the PMR works with a heavier trigger pull, and that can be a problem for beginners. This is where the disadvantage of the AEG arises. AEG’s are heavier than the standard ARMs, and the heavier they are, the longer it takes to prime the rifle.
The answer to this problem is the AEG with its heavier spring and longer priming time is a good option for many shooters. Once the AEG is fired, it is a good idea to prime the standard LR primer. However, if you are using a heavy print, you may want to go with the cci 34 since the primer is designed to withstand the large mass of the round and it won’t leave dents in the case. Remember, one of the benefits of using heavy print cartridges is that they are usually cheaper to use than high print cartridges. Although this isn’t always the case, using standard lr primers with your CCI 200 primers pistol can help you save money, so it is something to consider depending upon what type of shooting you are doing.
Another thing to consider is how fast you are firing the gun. If you aren’t changing out the shells often, you probably won’t have a problem with the primer flying by out of the barrel. However, when you are changing out loads frequently, you should definitely consider using the cci 34s as they are less sensitive than the standard LRs. They will still go off quickly however, especially when there are a lot of cases to get rid of before you need to get more.
