Question

What is the difference in the BR2 and the #200 Large rifle primers?

I want to reload some .308 cal rifle bullets. I know I should use a large rifle primer but am not sure about the BR2 vs the #200.

CCI BR2 (Bench Rest) primers were developed for bench rest competition target shooting. I use them exclusively in varmint calibers like 22-250 Rem and .17 Rem. I've tried them also in several .308 Winchesters. I find them to be more consistent therefore better groups. The .308 Win was born to be very accurate even with factory loadings. I have never noticed any change in accuracy between Standard 200 Large Rifle and the BR2. I'd suggest making five rounds of each with everything else being equal. Case brand, powder loading, and bullets. Use a good rest to shoot from. You will be surprised just how close the groups are alike.

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.

CCI 300 Large Pistol no matter if you are reloading for a rifle or pistol in 44-40. Be careful when seating the bullet. The case mouth wall are thin and easily crushed as you crimp the case to the bullet.

Since you didn't define which .270 (there are several) I'm going to assume you are reloading a 270 Winchester. CCI Standard Large Rifle primers will give you the best groups period. Try reloading five rounds each using different brands of primers all Large Rifle of course. Use the same brand of brass and powder loading. You will see that I am correct by saying that CCI primers give the best groups.

I use CCI 34 primers because I also reload for M1's and the CCI 34's are magnum primers and I live where we have sub zero weather and the magnum primers give great performance in the cold. You don't need mag primers for use in the 270win but I have had great success using them for accuracy using R-17 and Sierra 140gr bullets.
