    Tried out a few rounds of new .Priv .357sig through my G33. It's accurate,but 6 of 23 rounds did not fire due to hard primers. Just thought I would share this.:dunno:

    Are you sure it is hard primers, or a headspacing problem. Take out the barrel and drop some rounds into the chamber. The head of the cartridge should be about even with the top of the hood. Use other ammo for comparison. I thought the same thing with some other brand, but found that some of the cases were short causing the cartridge to go deeper into the chamber and the striker could not fully hit the primer. Either way it is not good ammo to use.

    I just checked like you said with other brands of ammo. The Prvi. with the primer strikes,and without sits flush,same height as two other brands of ammo I tried. :dunno:
