federal brass wont take primer

with the year 98 indicated could this be military brass? You can tell by looking at the base around the primer hole. It will have a line around it (crimp). It is my undestanding that this is to keep the primer from backing out when the ammo is used on a full auto weapon.

If this is the case you can get a crimp remover, some work in the press and re-swage the primer pocket. Others work like a chamfering tool and cuts it out. The later is easier to use.

Not sure if this is the problem but it sounds like it..

As a quickie, to try a few, your chamfer tool fill do a fair job taking off those crimps
