They are made to be harder than normal primers to prevent accidental discharge. Doesn't mean they won't work for other centerfire. Appear to also be magnum, so work up your loads, I wouldn't just do a straight substitution for regular large rifle primers.

So, to confirm, the #34s are only good for 7.62? Wouldn't work for other centerfire large rifle, e.g. .30-06?
Essentially a magnum primer for lighting spherical powders, and as shinzen says, more resistant to floating type firing pins which leave a somewhat disconcerting mark on primers.

and available now @ midwayusa
In a perfect world, we'd be bored to death.

Imagine your dismay at knowing they were only $35/1000 in 2019…

I don' believe that ebay policy permits the sale of live primers, or any other reloading component. USPS would have something to say also, but just for your amusement...
I’ve bought old “uncertainly stored” primers before. 1/5 of them were duds, and unfortunately you don’t know that until you get to the range.
