Which Federal primer were you using? All of the Federals I have ever used were nickel plated. Just curious... I'm pretty sure there are primers, even by Federal, that I haven't run across.

Brought my G27 home and gave the slide a good detail strip cleaning.

Using 6.8 gn of Power Pistol behind 165 gn plated HP.

Guess I'm ready to make up a batch for next IDPA practice and see how it does.

Sounds like you are good to go!
