i am using a gold custom for uspsa and my gun reliably sets off S&b primers(finally). i see that the general rankings for ease of set off is:

 

1. federal

2.winchester

3. s&b

4. cci

 

i see some posts say that the fiocchi is between the winchester and s&b. closer to winchester. have any of you found this to be true?

 

i'm using factory hammer spring(16 lbs), PD firing pin + PD spring.

Fed

CCI & WIN

SB

 

I was under the impression WIN is softer than CCI until I ran 5k CCI with 0 issues.  During that time I had 2 no-bang WIN, not even my gun issue because factory glocks and hammer could not set those off either :)  I am now a firm CCI believer.   I run Xtreme light hammer spring (13.8lbs).  Had numerous DA light strikes with SB.  SB is definitely harder than CCI.

My results were SB easier to fire than Cci. I think mostly because its hard to get the cci to seat uniformly deep.  But newer SB primers do seem harder

I love topics like this.  I've seen the rankings too:

 

1.  Federal

2.  Winchester

3.  Remington

4.  CCI

 

But also always wonder where S&B, IMI, Fiocchi, and even M882 primers fall.  Depending on who you talk to these primers are all harder than CCI or somewhere in the middle of the pack.
