Nothing (generally) wrong w/ Winchester brass (at least in my experience. Others have different tales.)

That said, I'd first get a headspace check if the primers have that much room to back out.

Once checked (and if in spec), I'd suspect un-annealed shoulders/necks on the cases
-- AND/OR --

the rim on the brass is not thick enough to handle the kind of lockup you're dealing w/ if you're shooting a lever action.
