Lapua Brass Off Center Flash Hole
I am just getting started in reloading... My wife bought me a RCBS kit for Christmas and I have been getting the necessary components together.
My goal is to increase the accuracy of my hunting rifle, a Custom High Grade FN/Winchester Model 70 Featherweight in .30-06. I do not plan to do high volume reloading as of yet, but rather I want to concentrate on making my ammunition as accurate and consistent as possible. I know that am not going to Camp Perry with this, but I want to squeeze out as much accuracy as I can.
With that in mind, I selected Lapua brass, but upon opening the box tonight, I found that about half of the flash holes are visibly off center.
1. How is this going to effect accuracy from the standpoint of consistent ignition?
2. Won't this introduce runout as the decapping pin will not be centered during the sizing process?
3. At more than $1 per piece of brass, should this be acceptable?
Thanks in advance for the info.
