Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

For years I have only used WLR or CCI 200 for garands and M1A . Never had an issue with these....but I never tried the CCI 34.

I have always used CCI primers in my Garand and a few times in my M1a no problem but I always make sure they are .003 or more deep

I use the primer in any firearm that has a floating firing pin and takes a LR primer.

It's better to spend extra money on primers than take a chance on damaging an expensive rifle, same with shooting cheap ammo.

CCI 200, 250, or 34 all work well in floating firing pin rifles. The only time I have ever had a double was with Winchester.
