I might be willing to risk it. How fast does breech face erosion occur? Is it something I could check every 250 rounds or so after each range session and discontinue the SRPs at the first hint of pitting?

link is in this very thread at the top. Could possibly be as little as in the hundreds.

I keep saying I am going to chrono the difference between small pistol, small rifle and small pistol primer.

So far I haven't.

I have a range buddy that did and says the only difference he has observed is the small magnum adds about 50fps.

I look at it this way, if you handgun will shoot reliably with small rifle primers, that is one less thing to keep in inventory.
