Re: Federal Brass Problem

Federal bottleneck brass goes in my scrap bin. Not worth the effort for maybe one loading.

Re: Federal Brass Problem

I've got several hundred federal loaded in various calibers here. I treat it like any other brass; if it's bad it goes in the scrap pile, if not it gets used. 5.56 nato, 270, 7mag, 300 win.; not all of my brass in those is fed., but enough, especially nato(I've got 1,000 fed brass loaded in 5.56 and it's been going multiple firings in a semi-auto).

Re: Federal Brass Problem

Don't worry about the primers seated below the brass. They should be seated snug to the bottom of the pocket. If they are left with space between the primer and the base, they can absorb some of the impact of the firing pin and that can cause ignition problems.
I think, therefore I am, conservative.

Kids are great, beer is good, and people are stupid.
