Re: CCI Primers
I also had problems with cci some 20 yrs ago when i started reloading. I was told to switch to Federal primers which are softer and never had a problem since. I think its more to do with the gun and the strike of the firing pin than the cci primer itself. CCI's are known to be harder to ignite.
Just switch to something else. Of course today thats easier said than done. It took me about 2 weeks to find Remmington small rifle primers in stock at Midway and it didn't take long for them to sell out again. In fact this past weekend at the gun show the only small rifle primers I could find were cci. There is a reason for that. Not many people like them.
