nononsence, got some questions for you about primers.

I have been loading for the better part of 50 years and have never had primer issues with off the shelf primers. MILSURP ammo, sure from the early 1950's Commie block stuff that had misfires and hang fires, folded necks, brittle cracks and the like. 15 years ago Tula primers in SRM were the most amazingly consistent I have ever seen across a chrono.
I can only think of a few rare instances where an off the shelf primer failed to fire or gave erratic ignition. Maybe 4-5 total out of a 100,000 or so shot.
In your experience are primers that important in getting accuracy and consistent ignition assuming perfect powder charges and perfect bullets?
Thanks for your thoughts!
