This i found puzzling. Primers never stick in my V2, no matter the load. Perhaps it is the primers you are using, i didn't note what they were. In my V2 i have always used W209 or STS primer.

If the primers are sticking because of soot caked on them, perhaps using the o-ring Western Powders includes with their BH209 breech plug, will cure the issue. Replacement metric o-ring can be purchased from McMaster-Carr. Normally these o-ring are good for around 30 shot. Another advantage of the o-ring is it will keep the primer seat from being flame cut.
