This chapter from an older Sierra reloading manual has the answers to a lot of your questions, and more information on top of that -

I believe the danger from using too sensitive a primer is slam-fires rather than pierced primers. Pierced primers will damage your gun, but slam-fires have the potential to damage you, especially if it is out of battery.

I also suggest you pay particular attention to full-length resizing.

Good luck.
