I have now photographed inside of the primer that was in my post from yesterday. It looks on the verge of blanking up the firing pin hole.

Can a weak firing pin cause this?
I would have thought excess pressure would be the most likely cause. But I am not losing cases to primer pocket expansion and 296 cases didn't show any problems out of 300 fired at the last matches.

Phill I suggest that you reread my post & not just dismiss it!!!!!
