I posted this in the ammo forum, but no hits.

The set up-

SPRish rifle. I got the Yellow Tavern reduced power spring kit, rather than trying the 15 minute trigger job..I'm not keen on cutting springs and such...

The Problem-

Using both XM193 and M855, Lake City, the firing pin will ignite the M855 but has a hard time with the XM193..

Is if safe to say that LC is using the same primers or could they be different? Could it be the OAL of the rounds?

The firing pin is lightly denting the XM193....on the second try the primer ignites....on the M855, the firing pin is striking it as it should be...

Any help on this is much appreciated...I have also e-mailed Yellow Tavern...

Personally I wouldn't mess with the springs unless you are a reloader and can tune your loads. For example use Federal primers. Their primers are the easiest to set off. But shooting M1 Garands, a slam fire will accure using these so each gun is a different. Being a reloader will enhance a trigger job (with tuned ammo to match the springs) but production ammo may not fire in the same gun.
