Yields of product(alkanes) are best for 1°(60%) and least for 3°(10%) alkyl halides. Can methyl halides be used in Wurtz reaction? Would it produce a good yield?

Methyl Halide if used , as it is primary alkyl halide and also can produce only one product ethane which is symmetrical and therefore the yield should be very much high .
