Ever had bad Primers?

I hit the range today to sight in a few Rifles for friends and a neighbor, Man! I was madder than a wet hen. I had a great load for the 7MAG and when I would fire, it would go snap BANG!
it was a half second after the primer was made contact, there was a real good hit on the primers, some did not even fire and I was using CCIs BENCHREST. I have never had a problem.
this is the first time I have ever had this situation. I just bought them, I had another batch in my .35 and they worked better than expected...Well I got some bullets to pull.
We got all kinds FORSTER, RCBS, HORNADAY and a Davidson. have you any input right now I am a bit upset to say the least. I need to buy a puller.

The loads I did with the 160grs were dead nuts on 35yards and dead at 100 also.
as usual my .35 just made one hole with 3 shots..My .3006 it made a string with three shots in the red. so I am good to go. Exept the 7Mag. DAMN!

    **** can the BR primers and go with a mag. Hangfires are a prob with large cap cases and standard or BR primers. Switch to mags and it will fix.

    First thing I would is to check primer to insure it's fully seated.
    Had same primer problem that was correct when seating was done correctly.

    If they are bad primers call CCI and they will have you send them the primers and they will replace them. Yes I too would go with a Mag primer with the 7mm Rem mag especially if you are going to be hunting with it in cooler weather. Summer time heat you can usually get away with standard primers but when it cools off or gets COLD you need a Mag primer with that much powder. Most primer problems are due to not seating them properly or contamination.

    Walmart carries a bullet puller (RCBS) if it would fit. Never destroyed a bullet yet. On soft points it will distort them a wee bit.
