Let's just clear this up now. Federal brass wad not the issue. It's a rifle issue. I've used federal brass for years in my 25-06 without any problems at all. But when you have a problem come up you have to diagnose it and in that process youve got to brainstorm the possible causes. Thanks again. Now time to go bear hunting.
BAM! :rolleyes:

I'm Confused??? What was the purpose of this Thread again? I was reading it as a "lets Bash Federal" and ,,,. I've got Hundreds upon Federal Cases and it's getting all shot up until it's gone. Not buying expensive Brass unless I'm shooting for a living. If you over-work brass it will fail. The End.

Joe, if it is incipient case head separation, you should be able to detect that using a straightened paper clip with a short 90 degree bend at the end. Run the point of the short bend down the side of the case on the inside. If you detect a low spot near the base, your case is getting ready to separate. That can be caused my sizing the case down too much, or excess headspace on the rifle.
