Re: Brass Failure

Just a question; have you used Brasso or other ammonia type cleaners on those cases?

Re: Brass Failure

101sniper, I don't see how you could actually CAUSE this.
I believe it's just a bad batch of brass.
Like re-market faulty brass...

No I don't use chemical cleaners only tumble when needed.

I didn't think it was me that was causing it. I think the same thing just got some bad brass. Thanks for the help.

Re: Brass Failure

The more I learn about remfedchester brass the more I lean towards paying more for better brass!

Re: Brass Failure

101,
I had the same thing happen with a batch of 100 pcs of brass, Remington also, but that was 8-9 yrs ago. They were .25-06 and I started loosing them after the second reload. Not sure how many total I have lost (20-30?) in all but I just threw another one away this past weekend, same symptom, probably from the same lot.
I think it's probably just a bad lot. The next I buy will get annealed after the first re-sizing. JohnnyK.

I guess nothing is perfict all time so I guess for all the Rem brass I have gotten tons of use out of I guess 1 bad lot isn't bad. I also plant to start annealing my brass. Thanks a bunch.
