Totally possible that this same gun could have gone 100,000 rounds of firing real ammo without it ever happening. The striker doesn't impact the back of the breech face as hard or at all when it's slowed down by the primer.

Giving the striker/firing pin something to hit instead of bottoming out on the breech face is one of the primary reasons to use snap caps.
