What's up with your Accu-trigger hatred?

I've always loved the Accu-trigger's,to me,it's almost like having a 2 stage trigger in a bolt gun.
They do take getting used to.

Back to your issue's,maybe the firing pin got damaged by the snap caps. You might want to swap out the firing pin and spring.It would probably be a low cost investment,plus if they aren't damaged,you'll have spare parts.

I dry fire bolt actions of all brands and dry firing has never caused any issues with any of my guns. You may or may not have a firing pin/spring issue but I really doubt it was caused by dry firing.

My guess is bad primers. I just fired off 10 cases with primers only and not a single issue.

Firing just primed cases is totally different then a loaded round.
Fire form your brass, then just neck size, I bet that will solve your problem, I don't think it is the primers---just sayin.

Dry firing is good pracrice and will not harm your weapon.

When I looked at the second pic my initial thought was that the second two primers looked like they might have been seated deep. I've done that by accident a couple times. Bear in mind I'm also somewhat new to reloading though. Take my opinion with a grain of salt.

Gun oil that has become gummed up sticky can do this as well, especially out in really cold weather, it could slow the speed of the firing pin down enough to cause a strike but not enough to ignite the primer.
