In competition we all want the light trigger pulls and softest recoil we can get. To do that we all use lighter springs and start to slow down some of the processes that happen internal to the guns that make them operate. This in turn rides the fine line between performance and failure to ignite. Our match grade ammo uses the federal small match pistol primers which are one of the softest primers and allow for more room for performance before reaching the cliff of that fine line.
