Ramset with hilti powder charges


hey guys, new here and was curious about powder charges.

I just bought a ramset cobra (hope it was a good choice, got it for $135 shipped brand new)

(i work as a union carpenter but im stocking up on tools to do my own stuff on the weekends)

My foreman at work was kind enough to give me a few thousand various pins and charges for my new gun but half the charges are hilti. I held the ramset and hilti ones next to each other and they seem exactly the same.

Basically my question is can i use the hilti charge strips in a ramset gun?

I figured id ask before trying for the safety of both myself and my new gun.

Universal sizing..perfectly safe....just like nail guns, Senco nails fit Porter Cable guns....all in the caliber and pin size.
