Yep, I've been using them for club match rounds for about a year. They seem comparable to CCI in hardness. The model 10 shoots them fine but it still has stock springs.

I have used about 7K of them, they are all I use. In that 7K I had 1 or 2 that needed another hit. A few weeks ago I had 2 more that I had to hit a second time to light. So I guess that's 4 in 7K. That is with a lighter spring in a revolver. Not real light, I think it is a 10#, stock is like 14#.

I make sure I don't have high primers, but they are a little shallow and may not be completely seated when they are flush. I assume that is the reason for the failure to light occurrences. I

The only odd item that I've noticed with these primers is that the transition from the wall to the base is sharp and not rounded like CCI and others. This could throw you off if you are loading hot and are keeping an eye out for flattened primers. Also, with these primers, on a Dillon 550B, the very last primer in the tube likes to come out sideways. Not sure why. I just know it happens and keep an eye out for it.
