The only thing I'll add is that the anvil needs to be seated hard, and a .005 bump will allow a primer to take a light hit, and thats a no-no with the hard cups on the mag Russians.. I've lit up lots of them and never a misfire...

I have had several misfires with Wolf Small Rifle Magnum primers and wrote it off to my light striking firing pin. Most fire on second firing.
My extreme spreads have been very good on those that fired.

I'm sure my twin Preacher has come to the same conclusion i have. Can't add much to this one.
I hope all the Imput has helped you.

My only experience has been with tle wolf LRM. This has developed as needing a good solid thump. Rem 700s seem to fire every time while lite strikers w/ small fp's like Browning and Savage mis or hangfire repeatedly. Only shot abt 100 in a 7WSM with 0 misfire and the Browning and sabvage in 300WSM run abt 15%. Primers do seat abt 3-5 thousanths deeper.
