Failure to Fire

Recently at the range I was firing a 14" T/C in 45/70. Five or six rounds out of 50 did not fire the 1st time I let the hammer drop.

After counting to 30, I opened the pistol looked at the problematic rounds (each time, a light depression on the primer), then loaded the same shell & refired with no problem.

This used to happen with a 7MMTCU barrel on this same frame, but never with the 45/70. These were reloads (2nd mild loading).

I had a 'Smith' work on the action years ago. . . it is a VERY light trigger.

What should I look at to solve this?
