sounds like Im having the same problem as VERMILLION
Hi there ... I was at the range last week shooting my xcr in 223 and I had a misfire upon unloading the round I saw that the primer had been struck but not hard enough...It happened twice in about 50 round of whinchester...I know they werent duds because I fed them through my AR with know problem..
have you completed the break in process?
-recheck screw and bolt tightness?
Have you had a trigger job? If so sometimes light strikes are an unfortunate side effect.If your hammer spring was bent during this it can cause light strikes.If it has been bent just straighten out the legs and you should be good to go.If not you may want a 7.62x39 hammer spring,that should solve any light strike issues,that thing is a bear! ;D
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse.... A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.----John Stuart Mill
Make sure you've put 300 rounds through your XCR first on gas setting 4. Try and use hot stuff if possible. M193 for example, or Q313A if we are talking Winchester.
After 300 rounds, take it down, give it a good cleaning, lube, add a couple of drops of CLP to the trigger pack.
If problem persists, change the ammo and see if that makes a difference at all. Some lots of ammo are better than others, especially when talking budget ammo.

It could be the ammo. Hard to say. When you push the firing pin in, does it clear the bolt face like it should?
