BR2 primers are Benchrest primers and they are all I use. The difference is mainly to do with the fact Benchrest primers are built to more precise specs and will deliver more consistency, shot after shot.
BR stands for bench rest primers which are used for sitting and shooting at targets. Their softer metal than standard #200

The BR2 primers are used by benchrest shooters because they are more consistent than regular large rifle primers. For regular hunting loads, I would use standard large rifle primes

The BR2 is not the best option but in a time of low supply they are a good substitute. Look online for load work up using these primers.

The BR2 is a Bench Rest primer. Higher quality control and just all around made better. They are for match grade ammo. Aside from plinking, all my ammo is loaded with Bench Rest Primers

The CCI BR2 Primers are the Benchrest primers which are tuned to the highest degree to produce match-winning results. These Primers are produced using the most experienced skilled personnel who put the priming mix in the cups, so you get the same flame, shot after shot. They also use specially selected cups and anvils for added consistency. The #200 are standard large Rifle Primers.
