Tula SP primers in a LnL AP?

I have read in several places on the reloading forums that Tula primers need to be seated slightly deeper than American brand primers.

Assuming this is true, has anyone experienced problems with light strikes or FTFs loading them on an LnL AP?

Thanks in advance,
Dan in ABQ

All primers are seated in the primer pocket until they bottom out. There is no "seated slightly deeper".

Not deeper, they just often need more force to bottom out. Wolf were like that & Tula is the Wolf replacement.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".

I've used thousands of Tula/Wolf SP primers in 9mm and 40 with no problems at all.

Use them with confidence.
