    I'm testing few of my guns for light primer strikes. What factory ammo has the hardest primers? Who's got the lightest?

    Speer/CCI has the hardest & Federal has the softest primers.

    In the middle.

    The only factory ammo I've ever had trouble with is Winchester 10mm Silvertips and some non-toxic primers.

    Are you running a light striker spring?

    Yes light striker spring and lightened striker in a g21. Had a few light primer strkies on pmc and tula ammo. Defensive american ammo always went bang. I have put back in the oem striker just to be safe. I really want to keep the light spring! So I'm going to give it a long hard go with hard foreign primers and see if I can't get a light striker spring to work well with a standard oem glock 21 striker.
