    A light mainspring/hammer spring or striker gun will work with the Federal SPPs if they’ll work with anything. The Federal SPPs are known for “soft”/thin cups.
    We used them in 8# Double Action PPC revo’s for that reason.
    The CCI SPPs don’t have that reputation.

    I also prefer CCI SRPs for the reason you state.
    A lifetime ago they were our preference for stupid hot .38 Super Major loads. They didn’t exhibit primer “flow back” like most SPPs did. Can only assume this was due to thicker cups.
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms.

    Funny you should mention all this. I went to the Federal way back when because my M&P 1st gen was a bit sensitive to primer hardness. It could have been a situation where the 1st gen striker geometry wasn't up to snuff and/or I wasn't seating my primers all the way for a long time...or a combination of the two. My wife's G34 never have a prob with my reloads. Now I have a new top end on my 1st gen with a new striker and corrected my primer problem. No more problems. And that's not just with Federals. That's the funny part you mentioned. I found a couple hundred each of CCI 400's and some old (way before the blue boxes) Winchester magnum SPP's. I loaded them up in 9mm and they all worked fine.

    But as a reloader and having some experience, you WERE able to tune your ammo to work with the firearm you had...
