- If you are using the certified ammunition then you might have the firing pin issue (tip is too short or broken) or crack in the hammer axis arm.
- If you are using reloads then you might set bullet so it seats too high in the shell case and bolt is not closed (though it actually can fire this way.....).

Those were the only two reasons resulting the light strike in my RDB. usually. I have the opposite issue with trikes through the primer, resulting the gas leakage into the mechanism.
