      Andrew, how low is low? None of mine strike in the centre of the primer and I know of very few that do. I suppose the next question would be how much do you have the mainspring turned back. Do they light strike on fast runs or just slow runs around the stick.

      All things considering unless the firing pin is striking the edge of the pocket it "should" cause the primer to go off if you have enough inertia on the hammer. Have you bobbed the hammer? Light hammer means more speed required to set primers off, which equates to winding that mainspring up.

      If all else fails then it's a trip to see Max.
