    I don't know of anybody using CCI 250 mag in BR. Mostly Fed 205m, CCI BR-4,BR-2 and 450's.

    I'm a CCI guy. I use the 250's and 450's when shooting ball/spherical powders such as H335, H380, H414, etc.

    Well, what do you call "BR community?"

    Most Benchrest shooters shoot calibers that use small primers. Around 90% of 100-300 yard group shooters are shooting a 6 PPC, It is a 50/50 mix in 100-300 score with the 6 PPC and the 30 BR. In the 600 yard world most are shooting some varient of 6 BR (IE 6 Dasher, 6x47 lapua, 6BRX, 6 XC.) In the 1000 yard you may see some large primer rounds with 6x284, and so on, but the 6 BR varients are also popular there. So with that said majority of BR is shot with small primers. In the 6 PPC most are shooting Fed 205 or 205m. Some may shoot winchester. In the 30BR manyy use BR4's, or Fed 205s. In the 6 BR varients many will use CCI 450 or remington 7 1/2.
