I called Winchester and the worst ones are going back. I didn't cull any out of the second bag.

The brass is fine, for the price winchester is best then federal, hornady is soft I refuse to use any of there newer brass, discard the ones with split necks, use the rest. I have some winchester 308 cases that have there 11th load in them, and I don't baby them at all.

New brass, is this normal?

The splits, no. The dings, yes. Easy to fix too. Or you could buy Norma or Laupua cases and avoid the dings.

I have always bought Remington & Winchester but lately I have been buying
Previ brass from Grafs&sons have not found any thing wrong with them and are half the price for 100 ct that the others com 50 per bag. I just wish they made all the calibers that I shoot.

But...You have to ask yourself....'Why are they half the price'?

I have a pretty good idea. I wonder if you do??

Re: New brass, is this normal?

I'm scratching my head on the Hornady brass. Walked past some Hornady factory loaded .338's yesterday because this thread came to mind.....

I've never had any issue with Hornady in .223 for match reloads, some reloaded at least 6 times. Primers stay tight, no problem.

Is it just the large caliber brass?

Wondering.
