Thanks for the many replies. I agree, head space and crimp is the issue. I'll try something new tomorrow and get it straightened out.
Correct, and this is what I did to check out the problem I was experiencing, and I also tried my reloads in my second carbine. There were light strikes with both of them - hence - it was the reloads.I agree that a thorough cleaning is the first thing to do if the carbine has light firing pin strikes with factory ammunition. If the carbine shows light firing pin strikes with reloads, I fire factory ammunition to rule in or rule out an ammunition problem.
I haven't run across that bit of information as yet in my searches of loads for these little carbines. Can you provide a link or a source?It is always recommended that one uses Magnum primers with H110.
