Primers for my .454 Casull

I finally have my Encore completely set-up, along with my loading bench down here in Iowa, it's sweet, I finally get my place to go and get away from it all. I've never loaded for the .454 before and I need some primer recommendations for it. Do I use magnum pistol primers or small rifle primers? I have some Remington 7 1/2 BR primers, are they a good choice or should I check out the CCI line? Let me know if you're experienced with this round, and alos feel free to send me some lower-powered loads for starting out with, I've read that I can use Universal, but how much before I run into trouble? TIA
