Superformance Brass

Hello all,
I've been a member for a few months, doing a lot of reading and learning, tons of good info. I have a question about Hornady Superformance factory rounds, I read somewhere that the primers were crimped. Is this true? I de-primed one and compared it to another case and I can see no difference in the primer pockets. I hope I just have to de-prime and resize them cause that gives me 40 more pieces of brass to use.

Thank you in advance
Joe

Re: Superformance Brass

Guess I am answering my own question, the brass I have do not have a primer crimp. I tested one and it took the primer fine. I was worried that I wasn't seeing it and igniting the primer if it got stuck on crimp. Now I have 40 more pieces of brass

Re: Superformance Brass

I've seen some Hornady 44 mag. with crimped primers, though, so it may be caliber dependant. Thought I was getting nice range pick-ups, and it turned out they were crimped and had rather shallow pockets. I'll use 'em as hunting brass so I hopefully loose them instead of my good stuff.

I had an issue with .308 superformance brass. I had a heck of a time repriming them. I finally tossed them. I have reloaded .243 and 300WM superformance bras without issue.

Mine are the .22-250 with the 50 gr v-max, if that helps anyone else. I was searching and it seams it is caliber dependent

I have no dog in this fight and just asking this question out of ignorance on the matter- do you think the .308 brass took small rifle primers and you were trying to insert large primers? I know there is .308 brass made for such.
