Remington ammunition shows up with a number of primer markings (LF, HF, HP and CF). Does anyone know what these primer markings actually mean.
I have 9x19mm loads with LF and HF markings. The box labels indicate the following:
LF: Box marked “Lead Free” ca’02 with a frangible bullet
HF: Box (UMC) marked “LeadLess” with an “Enclosed Base” bullet ca’08
The “LF” for “Lead Free” is easy. I could find nothing on the UMC box to tell me what “HF” meant. I have to assume it is something like “Hazard Free” but that is just a guess. The back of the box says “Clean Shooting, Lead Free Priming”
I don’t have any 9x19mm loads with HP or CF marked primers.
Any help on the meaning of HF, HP and CF are appreciated.
