Primers falling out???

25-06AI, Winchester Brass, Winchester Large Rifle Primers and about 1/3 of the primers are loose or fall out after setting them. What is up?

This brass has been used maybe 3 times and after I size the brass, I clean the pocket and ream the pocket with an RCBS Case Mate then polish. Do I need to stop reaming the pocket or is there another problem?

Thanks

    I'd say it is time to stop reaming.

    I don't ream, but if I did I'd only do it once per piece of brass.

    Either the load you are shooting is to hot and stretching the case or you are reaming the primer pocket to much.

    Thats my opinion.

    I'm going to agree with the above. Either the load is hot and stretching the brass, or you are reaming too much. I ream my brass once, and leave it alone. If its not cleaned as part of my regualr cleaning regimine then I give it a twist or two with my crocogator or other cleaning tool.

    You might want to mic the OD on the primers.I've noticed the Winchester primers I've used seemed a whole lot looser to seat in the primer pocket than CCI primers.

    the primer pocket reamer that i have only cuts on the bottom of the pocket, but i still only do this once to new brass. after that i clean them each time before tumbling. i also agree with the CCI primers being a tad larger in size, or it feels that way because the cup is actually a little harder.
