What I want to know is if others have had this problem and if I should send it into CCI to have them tell me why I lost my trophy.
Thanks for your input.
I read your post and just smiled. Primer failure rifle failure or operator failure doesn't make any difference. I'm assuming when you say a buck of a lifetime he was probably over 30 with crap hanging everywhere and you had him dead but he survived. Been there done that more than once. He put the "bad ju-ju" on you and your stuff and pulled it off. Big old bucks are good at that but eventually you will win and man it's good when it comes down!!
CCI and Federal are the primers I use and yes have had a few miss fires over the years.
