25-06- Loose Primer Pockets

I am reloading a Remington 25-06 Sendero, using RL 22- 54 to 58gr's, 100gr NBT's. Winchester Large primers. Pact Chrono ( 3437 to 3448 for 58grs) for velocity, half inch groups at 100 yds. I started at 54grs and worked up to 58grs. When I am putting in new primers they go in with no resistance. There is no signs of pressure, no extractor mark, no flatten primers. Could I have gotten a bad batch of brass? I threw away the brass. Should I try Fed 215 primers? Thanks Todd

    Running your loads on the hot side will cause primer pockets to get loose faster than normal. How many reloads are you getting on your brass.

    Brass is new. I worked up from 54gr to 58gr of RL 22. All brass had loose primers pockets. Sorry I did not put all information in my first post.

    I bought some federal factory ammo for .270 and after firing them the first time the primers actually fell out of the pocket after priming them. Several were loose, some fell right out, and 2 or 3 felt "normal" when seating them. Did you mention what kind of brass?, maybe there was a bad batch.
