Best Drywall Primer

I just finished mudding and sanding my new drywall in the garage. I feel that I did a really good job with the sanding, but just to make sure I want to get a really good drywall primer to hide any seams. I was thinking about KILZ primer or BIN.

Any suggestions.

Paint will not hide the seam/s and/or other imperfections and if that is your conxern, rent a texture rig.

As stated, primer will not hide seams if they haven't been sanded properly. Take a light and shine it along the wall, and look for any imperfections. If you can see them before the wall is painted, you will definately see them after the wall is painted.

Any latex primer will work fine, followed by 2 additional coats of wall paint. But for heaven's sake, DON'T USE an oil primer! Oil based primers will raise every hair on the drywall and you'll need to sand everything again.
