Sorry to hear about your troubles. I'm guessing you don't have many choices in your country. RWS or Norma, maybe?

Be sure to check that the primers are seated a few thousandths of an inch below the case head (or about 0.01 millimeters if your equipment is metric) and the firing pin goes out about 0.060" from the face of the breech (about 1.5 millimeters if I did the conversion right).

Federal primers have a reputation for being a bit 'softer' and more tolerant of a light primer strike by the hammer. That could be one explanation of the problem.

Again, good luck.
