    Hi all,

    I used to use small rifle primers (cci 400) for .38spl and it worked great.

    I have a p365 coming in this week and I don’t have any small pistol primers, but have a few thousand srp.

    Anyone using srp for loading for a p365?

    Just checking to see if the striker will have enough force to ignite them.

    I’ve done it with federal srp and had no issue in a p365.

    I use SRP for 9mm loads with success in my glock and canik pistols. Every once in a while “1 out of a hundred” I get one that doesn’t ignite, eject and carry on. Try the same round a second time and it ignites fine. These particular primers were 20 years old stored in a mil spec ammo can.

    Start a load a minimum charge weight and then work up. SRP has a stronger cup meant for rifle bolt and firing pins, but striker fire handguns can ignite said harder primer cup fairly well.

    Have p365, 1-2 per hundred not ignite by first strike, but work after second strike. Same story on p365XL.
    Absolutely different story – HK VP9.
    No any misfire. Thousand and thousand ammo.
    CCI small rifle primers.
