You might be alright !!

but I think that gap will close up when you pull the trigger.
Good suggestion on first pass and what deerslayer is talking about, is "Striker" rebound. See is this can happen by popping a cap. I routinely deactivate a cap to check/print for proper contact. If you need info on deactivating a 209 primer, PM me. ....

You in-line is of the open-breech type whick means that they are open to the weather. As mentioned, you will have less of the problem with the 209's than musket or #11 primers. ..

Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.
