choosing primers

I have a .45 Bounty Hunter. It has the firing pin in the frame rather than in the hammer. The firing pin only protrudes maybe 1/16", maybe less. I have used "Cowboy .22 Conversion" adapters (that allow to shoot .22 in a .45 revolver,) without any trouble, but when I use my hand-loaded .45 LC I get more misfires than normal shots. It seems I need to use very soft primers that will go off with a very short firing pin blow. Any suggestions?

Does is misfire with factory ammo?

If not, make sure to clean the prime pockets each time and make sure the primers are fully seated to full depth.
