I'm back with an update.
Installed the Wolf #17 hammer spring for a range test.
Every round fired and not one 32 SWL primer pierced out of forty fired.
Twenty two rounds of full power loads fired
with zero pierced primers.
Did I miss it,or have you mentioned what brand of primers are you using?

I do hope you were posting this as a joke.

Those six shot rotary magazines are down right dangerous.;)
All loads were tested with CCI small pistol primers.
I sure have had the opportunity to test many brands. CCI first as I have only had two fail out of thousands fired.

I agree with contender, concerning base pin jump. There are many ways to skin a cat. I chose to deepen the groove in the base pin. I painted the pin notch with black magic marker. Re-installed base pin. Smacked it with a plastic hammer. Exposing the high spot, that I removed with a couple licks with a round file. Problem solved. No more base pin jump. Five minute fix for me.

I would have thought that was pretty obvious even without the smily face...
