I have a relatively new (I bought it brand new at Walmart), prolly 14-6mo old, Rem 700 .243 basic SPS that I bought from Walmart. Before shooting it a single time, I replaced the trigger with a Timney trigger. I am no certified gunsmith, but installing one is NOT rocket science and this isn't my first go at them either. But, I have light strike issues with multiple different good quality ammo (Hornady, Nosler, etc)...the primer is struck, but not as hard as primers on a round that actually does fire. I have even reloaded the same round and after two or three times, it will finally fire. other times there is no issue and four or five rounds will fire fine.
what do you think might be the cause?
what course of action would you take to fix, i.e. some self smithing, send back to Remington, take to local gunsmith, etc?
