Brass Failure.

Noticed this while inspecting My brass after a trip through the Tumbler. I only have three firings on this Brass, guess I'll be discarding the lot and Parking the lapua until I can get some lapua Brass ordered.[ATTACH][/ATTACH]

Re: Brass Failure.

Is this due to excessive Headspace? Or excessive chamber pressures?

Re: Brass Failure.

Either of those reasons could explain your result. What's the load data? I would at first glance suspect excessive pressure.

Re: Brass Failure.

That should be a reasonable load. Adjust your die to just barely bump the shoulder. I'd start with fresh brass and recycle the rest of what you have there. YMMV
