Is there an echo in here????
The first batch of 100 cases that Chey Tac sent to me to test were not good at all. Loose primer pockets throughout the batch. These were the first batch of double star headstamped cases. Since then they have sent me a new batch to test. These were straight cylinder cases with no forming that I used to make my 50 Allen Tactical cases out of and will also use these for my 458 Allen Tactical. They seemed much better. Well, all I can say is that I was not able to loosen a primer pocket in my 50 AT and I was running them pretty warm. I will admit the round has more velocity potential but my shoulder was not man enough in the LW rifle!!!
I was also told by my contact at Jamision that if you get a batch of the first double star cases with loose primer pockets to return them to them for replacement. How long this will take was not mentioned
Yes, my contact at Jamison tells me there is now a machine dedicated to only 408 CT cases and possibly the addition of another machine will happen soon to make up and keep up with the damand for this case, mainly to wildcatters as much as actual 408 shooters.
