Bullseye 1-2-3 or Cover Stain for bare interior wood?
 
I'm going to be spray priming some FJ trim, MDF window sills, and pre-primed Masonite doors here in the next week or so in my new basement. In the past I've always used an oil-based primer like ICI Stain Jammer or Zinsser Cover Stain on bare wood, but I'm considering using the 1-2-3 because I could go ahead and use it on my new drywall at the same time. What do you guys think about the water-based product on the trim? Should I be concerned about the grain raising? Other things to look out for?

The odor and cleanup of the oil products doesn't bother me, and I recycle enough that the environment can take the hit this one time. I'm mostly looking at saving some time if there aren't any disadvantages. Let me hear your opinions. Thanks.

For me cover stain would be way over kill for drywall, I would go with the 123.

Chris must not have had his cup of coffee yet. He was asking about the trim. Go with the Coverstain. Latex is worthless for wood bleed and will lift the grain of the wood.

I agree with Matthew. You will end up with a better finish and no chance of bleed.

I'll keep it old school with the oil products. Thanks.

I would agree about the trim( I would still use 123 and sand it as it will contain MOST wood bleed) but the new drywall?
