You know that 'Barrel where everyone puts their used' TRASH?
Now you know why they put it there, right?

Re: .223 Cratered Primer Pockets with Factory ammo?

They're scrap brass if the primer won't stay put.

I used a box of "Superformance" 223 last summer and the brass was beat up pretty bad after the first firing. I was able to resize/reload them 2 more times with a Varget/ 52Gn AMax load my gun likes. After the third firing, most of the cases were done with splits and cracks. They all went in the scrap pail.

All the other brass is good to go. People that dont reload put all their stuff there. Its not the trash barrel, its for brass and boxes only.

But yeah, I hear ya!
