There is a collection of components within every Remington primer that has been manufactured to exacting standards. The priming mixture is carefully formulated for consistent ignition with a broad range of powder types, and cup dimensions are held to.0001″. Primers‘ stability is measured throughout a wide temperature spectrum, from –20 degrees to +150 degrees Fahrenheit. The revolutionary tripod anvil design allows for a larger strike area with maximum sensitivity, even when the firing pin is not striking exactly in the center. Primers marked “Etronix” may only be used in firearms using the Etronix technology, which is limited to the Remington 700 Etronix.
Each EtronX Primer consists of several parts that have been constructed with pinpoint accuracy.
The priming mix has been specially formulated to ensure reliable ignition with a wide variety of powder types and compositions, and the dimensions of the primer cup are tightly regulated to within.0001 inch.
During reliability testing, primers are exposed to temperatures between -20 degrees Fahrenheit and +150 degrees Fahrenheit. Since the firing pin often misses the center of the anvil, the novel tripod anvil design allows for a greater hit area while yet retaining optimal sensitivity.
