I've read a couple of threads on other sites that said small rifle primers could be used in place of small pistol by reducing the powder charge to low or mid range. I've done more research on the web but can't really find anything that convinces me this can be done.

The main difference in the two primers seems to be the force of the firing pin strike required to ignite the primer. However, I can't find anything that talks about the explosive force of the small rifle vs the small pistol. Anybody know anything about this?
