Been looking at better brass for some of my cartridges and I noticed Peterson Brass expressly states not to fire-form with it. Anyone have any insight as to the reason or is it just a liability statement? ADG and Lapua make no such claims that I have seen.

I saw the same warning and sent them an email asking about it. Reply was that it was lawyer-required. No problem fire forming. I made some new 6.5-06 AI and it worked great. Did note that the Peterson has slightly less volume than Lapua. Got same velocity with slightly less powder!
