The CCIs work fine in my RCBS RC press and RCBS bench priming tool. It would appear that the LNL AP is just finicky about primers. Maybe if I paint the press blue or green, it will change it's attitude.

It would be interesting to see if you have the same problem with Winchester or Remington primers. And you haven't checked the large primer seating yet, right?

That little mark / dent under the primer punch on the frame is normal; mine seats Winchester, Magtech, and CCI Magnum LP primers fine... I have heard of various lots of CCI primers having dimensional differences sometimes... by all means, try some other primers.

It does work adequately with Winchester and Remington primers. They don't seat as deeply as they do with my RCBS bench priming tool but they are good enough.

You serious about selling the primers? CCI is about all I use. I'm running the LNL also.

I have to really lean on the handle to seat Remington 1.5 primers in anything except RP brass. And they just flat out won't seat in S&B brass. Unfortunately, I bought a boatload of Rem 1.5's a year ago. Glad I figured out I can use them in RP brass.

No problem with Remington large pistol primers, or any other brand of small primers unless the shell plate gets loose.

BTW, do y'all switch out the primer seater when changing from small to large primers, or just leave the small punch installed and use it for both?

This ought to make you feel better

I read your original post and can tell you that I had the same experience with the same .223 LC brass and CCI primers. I am using a Lee Classic Turret Press and can tell you for sure that I have the exact same problem. That combination of brass and primer is the problem, not your press. Try some different .223 brass other than military, and the problem should be nonexistent.

Thanks for the tip. I'll give that a try.
