Lately I have been having issues with my handloaded ammo or it might be a firing pin problem. I hope it is the pin cause I made like 900+ rounds of 380! I would say about 1 out of 5 fails to fire. I have read that the pin can some times get carbon build up and stick. Has anyone here had a similar experience? Also I was told before that primers can some times be a little "harder". I use CCI small pistol primers and I have actually taken the "duds" and manually loaded them back into the chamber to check if the second strike would ignite the primers, this I found comes out to 1 in 3.

I did a full strip down and scrubbed her good!
Took her to the range today with one box of Factory ammo and the same amount in my handloads.
Factory was 100% fired with 2 FTE.
Handloads was 4 rounds completely failed to fire.
