Sure had my share of them. I've had a g/smith put the wrong length firing pin into my mod 14, two different lengths, guess which one I got?
I had trouble with my first 586, was touch and go with Win brass, Norma brass you could forget about but changed over to Lapua brass and was almost puncturing the primers each time. Lot's of measuring and sure enough, there is a marked difference.
Federal changed the "hardness" on their primers around 15-20 years ago,about the time they changed over from those cute little red boxes to the big grey ones. I had no end of trouble with the new ones, went back and tried some of the old ones, all worked fine. Half a turn on the mainspring fixed my woes.
