I have never loaded any because I did not fire any in my rifles.

I shot LC 68, 71 and 73 for almost 15 years and as long as you work up loads for the military brass it's fine. But the blanks are a different story. I did not know anyone that used them but to be honest
I don't know why you couldn't. I dont see anyone making two different kinds of brass for the same
cartrige.

If you are serious, weight it and compare it with some LC fired brass of the same year. this should tell you if there is a problem.

Sorry I can not help, but I am interested if anyone knows one way or the other for sure.
