All 5 went bang.
Going bang isn’t “the” test of a primer. Were their “bangs” equally powerful and equally instantaneous? A “pop” qualifies as a bang until a bigger bang comes along. Consistency is the test.

I was gifted 1k winchester lg pistol primers that about 1/2 were corroded white. Loaded the ugliest ones and all went bang. Only a couple hundred left. Also shot many brands /sizes of very old (60s - 70s) primers from an estate. All good.
Yours should be fine. In my opinion.
