Must have Magnum.

I will give you a tip that many LR shooters hold close. Get Wolf primers, cheaper than CCI and the likes and they are more consistent than any of the others.

Hang fires are most common when using ball powders in large cases at lower loading densities. Slow burning ball powders have a heavy deterrent coating which makes ignition more difficult. Quite often, increasing the powder charge (providing the charge is low enough that you can sfaely do so) will eliminate the hangfires. If you want to use lighter loads, there are powders which are more tolerant and will work well at lower pressures and low loading density.
Hangfires can also be indicative of a mechanical problem such as a weak striker spring or dragging sear or striker. GD

All very true. You also have to look at what you are he is loading. He is shooting a cartridge that is using around 90 to 100 gr of powder. That is a large batch of powder you are trying to set off. You need the larger longer flame of a magnum primer to get consistent ignition. Even a 300 weatherby which using 70 to 85 gr loads needs a magnum primer.
