You pretty well answered my question before asking it, but for comparison how do they stack up against CCI's "military" primers in cup thickness?
FYI - picked up a box of Wolf small pistol primers at the show. Loaded them up and had close to 12 that didn't light on the first strike out of about 150 rounds a the range. This was in a G26. I finally got around to stipping the slide on the G26 to make sure it wasn't the firing pin, and there was some very minor black in there, but not build up. Nothing that I would think would cause a problem
BTW, the round/primer would fire if cylced a second time.
So I've got more to run though. Now that I know she's totally clean, if I have the same problem, I'm going to say it's the primers.
Most of the complaints about FTF have been with the silver ones. I've had issues with my M&P (with the old striker) and a Sig P6 with a lighter hammer spring with the silver wolf SP. So far my stock 686SSR has gone bang every time. Although I haven't put as many rounds through it as I have with the 9mm's.
