    That is a good example of what can happen if you over cut the primer pocket. I got a batch of 357 sig that 90% were like that and looked like a top hat from blowing the primer cap out to fill the void. Scrapped the whole lot. I've seen that more with Rem than any other mfg. There generous radius primer pocket puts a lot of stress on the primer.

    I've read multiple times about using SRP in place of SPP but have never tried it for myself. Until today. I happen to have more of the SRP than SPP, so I figured I'd give it a try. Load was a 115gn Precision Delta FMJ over 5.4 gn Win Autocomp at 1.13 OAL. Shot at 7 yards. I didn't get the chrono out, it was too cold, but I'm encouraged by the results.

    Primer was a CCI 400 Small Rifle Primer. Gun was a GEN 4 Glock19 with a Lone Wolf Barrel.

    Just started sizing 500pcs. of once fired Fiocchi 223Rem that were given to me from one of the range regulars. All shot from the same gun and never hit the ground. These were 50rd boxes with all the same lot number and I even received the plastic trays and the boxes. I will be keeping these all together as one lot. These also have already been washed and decapped.

    That really isn't the case here... they are bad primers. Do a search for bad Winchester primers and you'll see. They perforated in the .41, but split like that in the .45's...

    Try the same primers in Fed brass and see if they fail. Now this happens when the primers are bad and/or on the border line. I went through this With Win primers over a decade ago. Win made good on them. 99% of my failures were with RP brass.

    From the pic....that looks like a rimmed casing....If that is the case, it wouldn't be 7.7 x 58 Arisaka.

    Stienel Ammo ( formerly Xcaliber) has loaded rounds,
    Midway has/had PPU brass.
    Hornady has .312" bullets. Listed for 303 British.
    IMR 4064 is a good powder.

    The 7.7×58mm Arisaka cartridge, Type 99 rimless 7.7 mm or 7.7mm Japanese was a rifle cartridge which was used in the Imperial Japanese Army's Arisaka Type 99 rifle and machine guns, and was the standard light cartridge for the Imperial Japanese Army Air Service, such as the Type 89. The Imperial Japanese Navy never shared weapons or ammunition with the army, instead adopting the 7.7x56mmR, a direct copy of the.303 British round

    Edit to add this is a quote from Wikapedia


    I think this might be the casings you found.

    ...Don't suppose you might have a lot number for those?

    ETA: I looked around and saw a lingering issue from lots in 2012/2013, and then just recently, a few mentions of new problems this year.

    Decapped and removed the crimp from 200pcs of LC .223 brass, then pulled apart my RCBS hand prime tool to clean out the shell holder things since they've gotten a little sticky, relubed it, and reassembled.

    Found this whilst cleaning and polishing:
    IMG_3587.JPG IMG_3588.JPG
    Apparently Nigerian, 1970. Plant run by the British, or so I've read.
    "Ordnance Factory Nigeria"
    Rumored to be HOT loads. Berdan.
