Last couple of HXP spam cans I’ve opened have been 63 and have performed flawlessly.

All the HXP from spam cans that I have opened has been perfect without any problems regardless of date

Years ago when we use to get 3006 ammo from the DCM for the Garand match we had a lot of misfires. When ammo was issued we would shack each round to see if the powder had taken a seat. If we could not hear it rattle in the case we would put them in a 20 round box and knock it on the table, rock, whatever to loosen the powder. Worked like a charm had very low misfires after that.

I have never had a mis-fire with HXP. Maybe the rifle?

Shot many K of HXP without problems.
You might want to check firing pin protrusion, hammer spring and rifle's headspace.

What are the misfires? It doesn’t go bang at all? Hang fire? Squib?

Hang fires and squibs are not MISS fires. Miss fire is no bang by definition.

OP:
Are you going to explain your issues or not?
Alot of people are shooting HXP and are curious about your comments.

Misfire
(DOD, NATO) 1. Failure to fire or explode properly. 2. Failure of a primer or the propelling charge of a round or projectile to function wholly or in part.
