Was this a really hot load? Over pressure can do some weird things to primers.

It was a factory load that I shot at some time or another.

Your bolt didn't fully engage and there fore didn't strike the primer fully. Becareful with those, it can make it seen as if it's an empty mag but can still fire for up to 15 min. After 15 min it's completely harmless and make a cool paper wieght

That is called primer flow. It happens when you have an over pressure load. Do you still have the box that rounds came in? If so get that box and call the manufacture and let them know what happened. That is a very dangerous malfunction.

If you see this on more ammo or different loads and brands then take your gun to a gunsmith.

I have had this same problem I don't think it's the ammo. I think it's from the bolt not closing all the way

If your bolt doesn't close all the way then the gun shouldn't fire, it's called headspace, this is a signature sign of an overpressure load or a hot load.....
