    I have a SKB mod. 600 trap o/u that my grandson shoots. Last year early he started having problems with the bottom barrel. About 10-15 shells out of a flat the firing pin barely dented the primer. The rest would shoot fine. I shot all the bad ones in my beretta and they fired fine. Iput new firing pins and hammer springs in the gun but it still does it now and then. He shoots the gun well and i hate to change guns on him . These are reloads with Fiochi primers fed. hulls and have had no problems in all my other guns. Any suggestions. BOB

    Drop the stock off your SKB and make sure firing pin retainers are tight (do you have the proper SKB tool to tighten retainers?), pins are free without drag or excessive resistance due to spring bind, and check for proper firing pin protrusion to insure correct installation.

    Also, you might degrease the action and lube with a good gun oil such as Rem Oil, Ballistol, or any good firearms lubricant. Do not use heavy lube or grease in the action.

    If arm still does not do well with Fiocchis, join the club. Many firearms have issues with them.

    I don't shoot skb's , shoot the reciever down good with carb (no wood!) cleaner, blow out the reciever with compressed air then give a shot of rem oil, just a quick mist.
