What you experienced is called a "ringer." I worked for a commercial reloader when I was in college and this was a common occurance. It usually happens when the brass has gotten wet. One time we got a whole can of 20,000 pieces of 38 special brass that had been out in the rain and just about everyone was a ringer. We ended up selling it as scrap. If you try to relaod one of these the new primer will go off. Played havoc on the $35,000 loading machines we used.
It has nothing to do with the brand, once you decap them and trash the ringers, you won't see the problem again.
