I'm testing few of my guns for light primer strikes. What factory ammo has the hardest primers? Who's got the lightest?

Speer/CCI has the hardest & Federal has the softest primers.

where does Winchester fall on the spectrum?

In the middle.

The only factory ammo I've ever had trouble with is Winchester 10mm Silvertips and some non-toxic primers.

Are you running a light striker spring?

RWS is hard!

Yes light striker spring and lightened striker in a g21. Had a few light primer strkies on pmc and tula ammo. Defensive american ammo always went bang. I have put back in the oem striker just to be safe. I really want to keep the light spring! So I'm going to give it a long hard go with hard foreign primers and see if I can't get a light striker spring to work well with a standard oem glock 21 striker.
