I got a plain optima, not an elite, about 6-7yrs ago. I tried many different brands of primers in it. I could about 6 rounds from the regular CCIs or Win magnums and then the primers would get packed in with carbon. They were very difficult to extract! With most other brands 2-3 shots would require tools to get them out! Thankfully being a break action gave me room for the tools. Then my brother-in-law gave me a nearly full box of these and Viola! I once counted 20 straight shots with these and I could still pop them out with just a finger nail. There is very little leakage and so no carbon build up, or at least not enough to slow me down.
