    Mixed #\'s of Fired Brass?

    Ladies and Gentlemen,
    I have managed to get brass that has been fired different number of times (1,2,3) mixed. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif Would that severely affect accuracy? Would anealing even things up? I'm in particular referring to my 300 RUM. All my mixed brass is of the same lot #.
    Thanks in advance for your kind help.

    Annealing and trimming should even things up but I would say unless you are a benchrest guy with a benchrest gun just trim em, load em and shoot em. If you have a hand held primer you might get a feel on the primer pockets to see if they've been under some hot loads based on seating ease. I'm guessing if your gun is capable of 1 moa accuracy you will shoot this brass with 1 moa accuracy.

    only one reply. I'm assuming what you're saying is
    right on the money.
    Thanks again!

    I've always wondered that to. I load test a lot of the time and I know I have some cases that have been shot more then others and always wondered if it effects accuracy. I try to keep them all shot the same, but tbats not always how it goes.
