Same problem

I just purchased my Triumph, got to the range with my newly bought ammo-250grain shockwave and triple seven pellets and the win777 primers. put the primer in and it wouldn't close. I am going to the store today to pick up different primers and see if that fixes the problem...

A friend of mine just bought the Triumph, similar problem. But with his the Win777 209 primers did close, but very was very tight, the Federal and Regular Winchester 209 primers did not close at all. He settled on using the CCI primers and the TC primers which are ok.

I believe the tolerances in the action are manufactured so tight that any slight deviation in the primer and it just does not close.

I personally like the Rem Kleanbore.
