Which brand of small rifle magnum primer is the most "sensitive"? I need the ignition power of a magnum primer, but have a problem with light firing pin strikes on my gun. Which brand is easiest to ignite?

I believe the Federal primers are generally regarded as the softest, so I would guess they would be the easiest to set off.
Just a guess. Try them all.

Small rifle primers for Magnums. Federal #205 Purple are probably the best.
