Marlin 917v misfires.

I was wondering if anyone else had a marlin 17hmr that was denting the case rim but not firing the round.I am shooting hornady ammo but any ammo will misfire randomly. I have had a gun smith work on the firing pin spring but that only made it some better. I also have a savage that will do the same thing but not as bad. Anyone else having this issue?

I had a similar problem with a savage 93r. I changed the trigger out to a Rifle Basix and use Hornady ammunition. Problem is 100% cured.
