I got the same cases from Midway back in the 1990's. They're Lapua. I had a few run-offs in my SKSs with Remington cases that used small rifle primers. Nothing like having 8-10 slam fires in a row to get your attention. So I changed to Winchester and these K-P cases with large primer pockets. Problem solved. Good cases. I still use them 15 years later.
