Friday morning I had a first: my first misfire with a factory hunting load in 35 years in the field. Since I recently raved about HeviMetal, it's only fair to mention it was a HeviMetal primer that didn't go off. In fact, it didn't go off twice, although the second time was my fault. Because I have never had a dud in the field, it didn't even occur to me that the primer was the problem. I figured it was my gun. So, I put the shell back in the chamber and about five minutes later a greenhead came into the decoys and my gun went "click" again.
