Not as big a felt difference as it is  between the Sig and S&B , but I'm confident it wasn't my imagination that it was a little more stout than the Sig. Mine is the same lot number as yours as well.

Gotta figure out the primer issue.

I keep my pistols stock. Never any issues with primers.

With a heavier than stock hammer spring mine hits harder than stock and definitely should not have that issue. It could be a combination of hard primers and seating depth. I will be shooting more tommorw with some of my other Tanfo's. Before today the only time I have ever had a light  strike with anything was a $200 Taurus revolver.

This was the shocker of today's shooting. Really stout and probably a little tough on the hands if doing a long session. Almost a tie between these and Buffalo Bore for strongest 180's ever recorded.

EAA Limited Pro 4.75" 1354, 1359, 1334, 1344, 1347. Average 1347.6 FPS/ 726 LBS
EAA Super Match 6" 1388, 1404, 1385. 1398, 1391. Average 1393.2 FPS/ 776 LBS

I ran the Sig Sauer 180's with them.

EAA Limited Pro 4.75" 1220, 1239. Average 1229.5 FPS/ 604 LBS
EAA Super Match 6" 1257, 1274. Average 1265.5 FPS/ 640 LBS

Wow. Any signs of overpressure?

  I will have to look at the brass and see if anything is there. My pistols also gave primer hits that didn't set them off. I'm sharing what I have with Fenix about everything.

I was told they use Long Shot for the powder. Probably a decent amount!

   Fenix took the lot number and said they would look into the primer issue. They are changing to Federal primers though now that they are more readily available.

Primers that didn't pop
It looks like the hits were pretty okay

Those from Fenix Ammo didn't go bang?  That's not cool!  Have you cleaned the firing pin channel lately? 
I have to wonder if those casing are short and moved forward with the primer strike...

Putting them in the mail to you tomorrow with the other rounds for pull-down. Hopefully it turns up something!
