Anyone having issues with recently purchased BOSS shells and bad primers?

I recieved 2 cases a few weeks ago and just tore into one this weekend. After about 40 shells, I had 5 or 6 bad primers. No issues with other shells all week, or ever for that matter. And never had a single issue with BOSS in the past.

I have had one primer blow out the back of a shell, but no misfires.

If you follow the Social Media, they recommend a new spring, or set of springs for primer strikes. guys with Benelli guns seem to be reporting a similar pattern/problem.

After a spring swap, guys have reported no more issues.

Try the light strikes /bad primers with a different gun and see. Wolfe springs is what they recommend.

That's what I just heard from another. This gun has never had an issue with light primer strikes, or with previous runs of BOSS. I guess it's a new primer supplier...so the issue isn't mine, it's theirs. I'll be contacting them tomorrow or Tuesday.

With supply issues and trying to keep production going, it's possible they switched primers or got into a bad LOT.

I've never shot BOSS shells, but in the last duck blind I was in, someone had left two BOSS shells behind. Both had struck primers, but the shell was not fired.
