One bad primer

Out of the last 18,000 rounds loaded, I have had one bad primer. I always use Winchester primers, so my question is, what is everybody's track record on primers?

Nothing but problems with CCI primers using Dillon 550 press. No problems winth Win or Rem. Surprised so many think CCI are OK. Not my experience but then I guess that is why there is more than one manufacturer. Incidently more to the point the CCI primers that seated properly all did fire, just there were in the batch I had to many out of spec. Win primers have never given me problems.

The problem I had with CCI primers was they were just out of spec. I measured them and several were larger than they should have been. As a result they would not seat in the pockets. As I recall in a 100 on average the lot had five that were odd sized. Nothing to do with the press I can assure you. I must also say that I have used CCI primers from another brick that worked fine. I guess, since I have had no problems with Win and REm primers I decided to stick with those.
