You can get an upgrade kit from Remington to g from percussion to 209 primers.

I use sabot bullets. With my new scope I'll be trying a variety of bullets as each gun is finicky. My Rem 700 30.06 loves Hornady Light Magnum and Custom loads but strangely enough does not do well with any Remington ammo, go figure.
