Default Ever has a fussy gun?

I just got back from a year in WV babysitting my grand kids. I had closed the house and entrusted my guns to friends, leaving my reloading supplies in Cabelas boxes except for a handful of small pistol primers I had left in the hand loader. I loaded some 38 Spl with them and some powder yesterday and had 4 mis-fires and one squib. That ticked me off. I tried some new Remington primers in some other shells and had to run three of them around the gun twice to get them to fire. I went to Magtech primers and they ran like a dream. I guess I'll save the Remingtons for my Glock.

Dave

The Remington primers are not known to be overly hard. Never used the Magtechs. You want a HARD primer? CCI.

I have already experienced CCI hard primers. Fun. I was surprised about the Remingtons. Federals are fairly soft. Thanks for the reply.

It's a Rossi 351, fairly new that hasn't shot many rounds, mainly because ammo is more expensive. I finally got some brass for reloading and will wear it in some more. The trigger is strong enough that it should hit hard.

If they were handled or any moisture/oils were on them when loaded that could explain... I have 10 year old primers that hold up fine if stored proper.
