    That's areally high percentage. If you feel there's nothing else amiss than switch lot #s.

    I have had similar problems with CCI primers. I havent used them in 10 years because of that. Couldnt tell you how they are today.

    I think I'd let CCI know about it...

    I"ve shot thousands of the 400 small rifle primer out of my triple deuce without a hiccup. Not one problem with them.

    I've also used the CCI BR-2, and 200's for my non mags, like 243, 25-06, 270 with no problems.

    Currently use the 250 mag in the 338 EDGE.

    Believe I use the 550 small pistol mag for my 357

    Bottom line for me is I've not had 1 single problem with CCI primers. I started using them probly about 10 years ago.

    How old were the primers?? How were they stored if they were old??

    I would call CCI and let them know the lot #. Maybe they would reimburse you in the meantime??

    The rifle is a cooper mod 21 in 6mmppc .I will get in contact with cci to see wot they have to say.
    In the past though i have shot thousands of their primers without any problems.

    The primeres were stored in a dry ccabinet inside my house their is no way any moisture could get to them.

    Maybe though it was my bad and i got some oil on them during the relodnig process.
