hey guys, has anyone had issues with magtech cowboy action loads in 38spl , or magtech ammo in general in their 715? im getting light strikes as in up to 30 out of a box of 50 misfireing, both in sa and da.
i have a palmer 715 fb. i have replaced cylinder hand had it fitted to fix timing issues, replaced firing pin, i am using the stock mainspring(i think), kept the grip screw loose, shimmed cylinder to remedy endshake, added reduced power triger return spring from wolf, checked cylinder ball retention screw to make sure it is flush to frame, replaced ejector rod, (last one was slightly bent), and thorough cleaning. Im running out of ideas . Mabee a new factory mainspring?or is magtech ammo just no good in a 715?. Thoughts from the dan wesson brotherhood would be apresiated.

I have shot Mag tech standard .357 Mag ammunition in three different 15-2/715’s with no problem (I know this does not correlate directly to CA loads).
All of my small frame DW’s have had the Average Joe Tune up. I use DW factory springs only, simply because I bought six sets a number of years ago.
One thought on light strikes, when you say “thorough cleaning”, when dealing with light strikes, one of my first places to check is the firing pin, firing pin spring, and the channel that the firing pin works thru. Even a little powder residue, gummy lube, …can slow the firing pin enough to give light strikes.
I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.
