    Rsrocket1 post#10: "Try running some loaded cases through a press mounted primer seater and try shooting them off. Maybe your hand priming system isn't giving the same "feel" with Remington primers as it does with the other primers you've been using."

    I hope you are joking about this! If you are, it should be stated as such. If you are not, and I'm correctly understanding your sugestion, in my opinion you have ABSOLUTELY no business making sugestions to potential reloaders that possibly may not know better. Not attempting to reseat or further seat primers on charged cases / loaded ammunition is one of the FIRST and most Important safety rules of reloading!!! I apologize to the OP for hijacking the thread, and I apologize to all if I am coming across as rude, but I felt this needed to be set straight. I take safety VERY seriously, including the safety of anyone I may influence or be able to help in any way. I also can not believe I am the first person to point this out with 15 posts coming after this statement. I am just getting into reloading myself but am I missing something or is this as dangerous / reckless as I believe it to be?

    I've been reloading about 5 years now and never seen nickel plated Winchester primer. The boxes look old.

    No telling the history on those old primers. I don't think calling and complaining about some primers that old is going I do any good.

    So you say you have loaded for for pistol only. Rifle brass requires different guidlines. I have never had even 1 win primer fail even som old Staynless (silver) oned I was given by someone that hade them for 30 years.

    Compare your brass from a once fired case to a reloaded(ready to fire) case. Is the shoulder bumped way down? I know it headspaces on the rim but some older 30/30's have really sloppy chambers. You can reduce headspace by minimally resizing the 1x fired brass from "that" gun.


    Also maybe its light striking? As said above, if its not seated all the way in, combined with a loose old gun, you will only get a little dent and no fire.

    Try loading CCI's or something different, and doing everything the same and see if you get the same result if you dont think it could be the gun's fault.
