grey, that's some good information you posted, and something to keep in mind if you unload and reload your pistol. a loose primer is one thing we would never ever probably think to cause a round to fail to fire. thanks for the heads up.

As I read through the advisory, it seemed to indicate that the compound in the primer failed. My understanding is that the primer compound is a plaster type substance. If the compound becomes a powder due to repeated mishandling, then it will fail to ignite when the cup impacts the anvil. Correct me if I'm wrong but that was my interpretation.

grey, i am not for sure either, but that sounds reasonable and could very well be what happened. all in all, very good article and shed some light on how we handle our ammo in the future. thanks for posting it.
