Primer issues

Is anyone else out there having any problems with WInchester large rifle primers? I was doing some load testing and had one rupture and end my test, doesn't make sense to me load was 3 grains off max with no pressure signs.

    Wow...never had an issue with Winchester primers. I am currently loading my 22-250 with 35grs of H3895....working flawless.

    Are you sure it was primer issues or too large a primer pocket in your case? That can cause rupture also.

    I guess I should clarify I am shooting 7mm mag in federal cases this was on the third reload. Positive it's not pressure related, just can't wrap my head around losing the primer pocket so soon
