    What brand of primers? CCI have been known to give some issues. I switched to Winchester.

    I also load on a LCT and I have to really lean on the lever to get CCI LPP to seat in .45ACP.

    That might help, huh? Remington No. 1-1/2 small pistol primers.

    Try a primer pocket uniformer, mine is a Sinclair, works perfectly. They make a drill chuck for it, you can do a bunch fairly fast and you are good to go. The primer pockets will all be the same size after the uniformer. You might have some primers that are oversized, and your pockets are undersized, this will fix the brass.

    I also prime brass on my Lee Turret. But, I usually have a single stage set up with a ram prime and use that. There are easier ways to prime brass and the awkward pushing/lifting of the lever makes it seem harder...
