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?

1ppm failure rate is impressive for any manufacturing process. I got one possible bad primer in over 25 years. I don't remember the brand but it could have been a reloading error. I also have a new brass shell with no primer hole but I caught that one before loading it. I use mostly Winchester and Federal. The CCIs need to be whacked harder so I don't use them anymore. - Phil
