Hell yes, a Redhawk in 45LC and 45ACP! Boo light primer strikes

Just picked up a Ruger Redhawk in 45 ACP/45LC. I'd like to say it shot well, but 3 fail to fires out of 100 is terminal to that diagnosis. With factory defensive ammo, it was closer to 2/14 failure rate.

Guessing the Remington has softer primers. But it still had a fail to fire. Even the 45LC looks odd. Note: the 5 on the right and bottom one of the adjacent row were fired from a different gun. 
I've contacted Ruger, guess I'll see what they recommend. I never had problems with my 454 Super Redhawk. Hope I don't hear some excuse about primers. Or holding it right. And it's a pain to measure the firing pin extension with my current dial indicator. Shoots nice DA. When it goes bang, that is.
