    CAN'T WIPE THE SMILE OFF MY FACE! Shot nothing but reloads, and actually had two light strikes (not a rectangle, but a small round indentation). Anyone have any ideas? I bought it used, and thinking maybe the striker spring was perhaps changed out? I don't know, any insight is appreciate it.

    Were you using Starline brass with Wolf primers? I have had a few ftf's because the primer cup was cut too short which seated it too deep. This caused the FTF.

    Full house loads in a G20 are great fun. Great for training too. After shooting the Glock my 1911's feel like .22s. My favorite load is 9.4g. of Longshot under a 180g. Montana Gold HP. it gives me 1250fps out of a 5" KKM barrel. The KKM is just to keep the brass in good shape because it is so hard to find.

    Starline brass and CCI primers. The first few I did were seated kind of deep, but I rechambered them and BOOM (emphasis on the BOOM :D). It might be worth mentioning that the 40 conversion barrel did the same dang thing.

    The striker spring is a good candidate. If the gun has had an overtravel stop added, the stop might be set too short, which will do the same thing.
