Best Primer Sheen - Going to black to medium gray

Picture shows the two colors I’m dealing with. Going from a low LRV black to a medium LRV gray.

The room is currently eggshell Ben Moore Wrought Iron. It’s essentially a deep black with blue undertones.

I’m going to paint it eggshell Sherwin Williams Pewter Cast.

Primer Sheen over the black…

I think if I use a flat primer to cover the black, the primer will “soak up” the Pewter Cast that goes over it…meaning I’ll have to use much more gray paint to get good coverage.

Is it better to use an eggshell primer in this case?
