Anbody use ultralite firing pins

Re: Anbody use ultralite firing pins

Use them, like them. Also watch your primer cups to see if you are getting primer flow from low pressure loads. Many times that can be stopped with a bushed firing pin hole taking it to .068 instead of the .072 with lots of slop like remington uses.
