It may be either the reaming...or your load is too hot, stretching the pockets.

It could possibly be a combination of the primer pocket in the brass being factory made slightly oversized and the primers being slightly undersized.Just a little in opposite directions equals a lot.You might want to contact Winchester and let them know about your problem.

Re: Primers falling out???

I use my primer pocket reamer to clean my primer pockets after every firing. They cut the bottom of the hole not the sides. IMO your over pressure.
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.

I'm with eddybo on this one. I use it to clean mine after every firing and it doesn't effect the diameter of the primer pocket. You are running your load a little on the hot side.

Re: Primers falling out???

I agree with all of the above.
I think to hot a load is the primary reason. I also use the Lee auto prime.
When re-priming if the primer just goes in way to easy I pitch the brass. I have had primers back all the way out. This really messes thing up when using auto loaders.
My rule of thumb - if I am in doubt about a case - pitch it!
