Stock pic shows large primer. But, I wouldn’t rely on that.
Not sure I’ve seen Winchester brass with the small primer. But, I rarely, if ever, pay attention to head stamps when picking up range brass or buying once fired for pistols. For my 5.56 and .308, sometimes but not always.
I guess I would not mind the small primer so much if I bought a case and it shot well. I would have to make sure I picked up and saved that brass separate from from all my other large primer. I think all the mfrs will be small primer in another 5 yrs. Would rather have large for some reason.
I would switch to all SP 45 if I didn't have so many LP brass (thousands). Since I don't run SP 45 it's a major annoyance when I run across one while running the progressive. I sort carefully now but have a couple K that I ran threw the tumbler w/out sorting so have to sort them while I'm reloading. Pain in the butt. I quit picking up range brass. Someday I may just order up a couple K SP brass and dump all the LP, it would make switching calibers quicker for the most part as I mostly shoot 45 and 9mm.
