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?

I roughly 140,000 rnds loaded since I started keeping accurate records and my pro2000, I have only had problems with winchester primers. Since I switched to cci's, I have not had a single primer problem that I was sure was not the operator's (me) technique. Usually I would over seat the primers on the down stroke.

I don't worry about primers any more. They are such a rare failure, other then a quick inspection of the strip (cci's) for missing anvils etc, no problems.
