      Its interesting using Federal Primers, they are expensive and the only real reason to use them is the fact they are the softest of all primers which means you can wind back your strain screw to give you a light pull. I found using a Dillon 650 press to reload 38 specials there is an inherent problem with reliability to seating the primer consistently and ignition problems always occur. So you end up winding the strain screw right up until the problem goes away but the trigger poundage is up higher than you want, until I worked out the trick to perfect ignition every-time.

      Hand prime your brass and inspect every round to see that there is a round hump on the primer top so the anvil is slightly showing through the top of the primer, its time consuming and you need the right lighting but if you inspect every round and the ones where the primer top is flat need to be either set aside as practice rounds or chance your arm and put it back through the press wink.gif
