Re: Winchester Brass YUCK!

I have experienced the same thing with recent Winchester purchases.

My recent Remington brass purchases have faired better.

Re: Winchester Brass YUCK!

I bought 150 pieces of new Win. Brass about 2 yrs ago. There were very few that were unusable, and after the initial prep work it has been very good. I have some with 6 firings of a pretty hot load and primer pockets are just now starting to loosen up. Oh, I full length size and do not anneal.

Re: Winchester Brass YUCK!

I can certainly recommend NORMA and LAPUA from first hand experiance and STARELINE in 45-70. Very little prep work just went through 200 new NORMA cases with zero issues.

Re: Winchester Brass YUCK!

Just picked up some Winchester 25-06 to neck up to 6.5-06. Had to throw 2 away and do some major reworking. I won't buy again.
