I just finished prepping 2 boxes of once fired brass. The brass came from a friend of mine. The box was marked Federal "Premium" and he says he purchased them new. Head stamps look good. It seemed to me that the brass took an awful lot of work compared to other brass that I've reloaded. The flash hole was not in the greatest shape and took longer to ream than usual. Most of the necks look like they have cut off marks on them? Is this normal for Federal boxed ammo? Just curious.
