Primer Questions

My 2K HS primer was applied over the epoxy then blocked in 180grit dry, reapplied HS primer then blocked 400 grit wet about 6 weeks ago.
Been preparing other panels since.
I have been doing the above priming and blocking but have noticed the original stuff isnít as smooth to touch as the recent panels.
Is this normal?
Should I resand before appling the next coat of primer?
Could the roughness be over spray?
I here you should let the primer sit for a month prior to final sanding for top coat to allow for shrinkage etc?
I am planning on finishing in 600wet?

It's possible the primer has shrunken a little and that is what your seeing. If you are going to do a final sand with 600 I would not worry about it.
