No. 1 1/2 size primers

So I recently received an order of small pistol primers and when I opened them up, I noticed they were No. 1 1/2 size primers.  They also came with a warning to not use with .40 S&W.  I never saw any size indication on the website I used.  If I made a mistake, I'll eat it, but can anyone tell me if they've had experience with this? Can use those size primers with .40 S&W?  My load is usually 180 grain, Titegroup 4.8 at 1.195 OAL.

Well thats what the MFG is saying, say to use 51/2's for higher pressure rounds. If you check a manual should list pressures and you could find a combo that meets your PF with less peak pressure.. Probably something in the slower burn rates.
