Just bought 2 hundred Federal No.215 Mag. L.R. primers to try. I was having some CCI BR 2 not go off in my Marlin Guide Gun.

Been using CCI primers for well over 35 years. The only ones that didn't "go off", were due to a firing pin issue, not the primers. Usually with bolt rifles in cold weather. Even had that happen one really cold, damp morning in doe season, with my 444 Marlin.

It went off the second time I pulled the hammer back and let 'er drop, but by then the deer were into the saplings. Killed a nice, thick sugar maple sapling though.

Taught me to keep the bolt/firing pins free of goop. Even so, became a habit to dry fire the rifle, then load it, when going out in deer season. Ain't had an issue since.

Yeah I've never had a problem with CCI primers either and I have been using them a long time too but I guess there is always a first time. I took the bolt apart in my Marlin G.G. and cleaned it real good even though it wasn't that bad put it back together and headed out to the range with the same reloads and same thing happened. But I did have several go off on the second time I let the hammer drop. So I thought the firing pin was bad and put a stainless steel one piece firing pin in it and loaded up some of the Federal primers and haven't had a problem since. Now, I have no problem with my bolt action rifles and the same CCI primers.

I have heard of so many primer problems but i do not think it ever turned out to be the primer. i have been using CCI primers that i inherited from the 1960's with $6.95 price tag on a brick of 1000!

my recomendation is look elsewhere...pocket uniforming? seating, head space or gun.

I mentioned this in another forum, A few years back, I bought a Marlin 336 cheap. The guy was having miss fires with factory ammo. I took the bolt apart, at some point someone thought putting grease in the bolt was a good idea. I cleaned and oiled everything. Not one miss fire in 15 years from that rifle. Over the last 50 years of reloading. 99 % of my miss fires I have had and I can say there were very few. Were the gun or something I was not paying attention to when reloading.
