    Just started reloading my own 9mm. What are the advantages of getting the more expensive stuff vs the mid and lower ranged priced primers?

    Some companies will always charge a premium. (nothing new here)
    I have never had problems with primers, but lots of folks have complained about primers bursting (surprise!) and other 'sand in the vagina' type reasons. Personally, I say if it goes "boom", doesn't cause mis-feed, and can still be reloaded, it's good to go.

    The only thing I can think of that the more expensive primers may have on the rest is quality control. That's worth the price for most people.

    Primer hardness is an important factor. If you have reduced power hammer springs, you may want a softer primer (CCI, Federal, etc) to ensure ignition. In an AR (or other semi-auto with a free floating firing pin) you may prefer harder primers (Wolf, etc) to prevent slam fires.
