There are far better.
To start with, get a zinsser product.
And have it say exterior.
What are you priming, raw wood, painted wood? siding?

Just noticed you said original- which is their oil. I think it is just an interior product. But it would say.

Kilz to me is like using milk to try and prime. I've had 0 luck with it covering or sealing even the slightest stains or feathered out old paint.

I know KILZ gets bashed on here a lot, but it does have its' uses. I think it is fine as a minor stain blocking agent.......i.e. water stains on ceilings.......but not so good at hiding pine knots or even crayon marks on walls. I have used it with GREAT success as a primer on cabinets that have poly on them and are going to be painted. It's "stickability" is very good. And, for the record, I am talking about the oil-based KILZ.......never had any luck with the water based version. And, to answer the OP's question, NO, I would not use it for exterior use.

I am among the first to send up a red flag when I hear KILZ is being used but the first thing that comes to mind is the waterbased product which is worthless. The oil is alright and the rattle cans can even come in handy in a pinch.

There are better products out there like just about anything in the Zinsser line, Ben Moore Fresh Start---oil or waterbased---etc. And of course I think self-etching metal primers a good idea for gutters, metal window frames, metal roof vents and flashing and such things but certainly used high bond ones also.
