My agency is experiencing frequent misfires with our factory reloaded practice ammo.
(.38 special 125 grain +P)
It has a fully encapsulated jacket with a clean fire primer. This problem is not isolated to a specific batch lot. We have inspected the trigger pull and hammer drop on our revolvers and found them to be in spec. Additionally the primers are not deep seated. We however do not experience this problem at all with our duty ammo (Spear Gold Dot 125 grain HP). It has been suggested that the primer may be too hard. Has anyone else experienced this problem or have any suggestions on an alternate lead free primer or cartridge?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
