primers falling out

People, last night I was reloading some Federal hulls with the paper base wad using Federal primers. The primers kept falling out of the hulls. I increased the primer depth on the press to no avail. This was the second reloading of these hulls. Prior I used Winchester primers with no problem.
Using a Ponsness-Warren 375, 20 ga Federal hulls, 3/4 oz hard magnum shot, claybuster 1075-20 (yellow) wads and 15.3 grains of Unique.
Should I just trash the hulls or.....
Any ideas

Trash yes. That's what I do with Federal hulls. Too many WW & Remington hulls out there than to have to deal with the aggrivation.

You could try this:

I mentioned it in an earlier post, in case you're interested, it is called a " Williams PPP (Primer Pocket Peener). (To salvage fired shotgun cases in which the primer pockets have been enlarged) - The Williams PPP will resize or peen the primer pocket back to the original size so the live primers will fit and hold snugly." Williams Gun Sight Company - 'On the Range' - Davison Michigan - Gun Nut
