So as everyone knows, getting 308 Win components has been a bear now for close on 3 months. Brass in particular has seemed non existent and the large rifle primers a very close second. So a couple of weeks ago I saw that Wideners had bulk packs of 500 308 LC12 shells, primed for $159. So i ordered 1 package. They came today and I looked them over. Like much bulk packed brass, the necks are a bit of a mess, lots of oval and dented ones. Its just a bit new for me how I am to fix the necks given that the cartridges are primed ? The neck sizer is out because of the primer, but perhaps one can adjust the full length sizer that it will work ok ? No lube though, because of the primer ? Otherwise maybe cut down the mandrel on my Lee neck sizing die to avoid the primer ? Are the primers crimped ? I see no evidence of a crimp ring or staking. The headstamp reads LC 12 LR. Does anyone know what primers are in this stuff ? Quality of the brass ? I know this stuff tends to be thicker that civilian brass so less powder capacity, but how about hardness ? Does one lose the primer pocket after a few reloads or will it hold up for a while ? Thanks for the advice.
