    Hey pdhunter,

    I am not 100% sure on this one, but I think that the WW Super brass is of lower quality then the regular Win brass. You usually see that Headstamp on the Win Super-X ammo - the grey box stuff, usually with that damn crimp on the neck that is a pain to get out. I find the brass to be softer and stretches more easily then the regular win brass. If you have some of it, then reload it, but watch for crushed shoulders, head seperation and other signs of junky brass.

    Like I said, not 100% sure. If someone else knows more on this one, they would be better to ask. Good luck.

    Well, you can't go wrong with that now can you /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Is the Win bulk brass - the stuff you buy in the blue bags, does that have a stamp of WW Super? I can't remember.

    The blue bagged stuff is the WIN. head stamp. I didn't know that the ww super could be bought in bulk.

    I don't think that it can, well not that I know of anyways. I wasn't sure which was which. Thanks for clearing that up for me. That just reassures what I told you about the WW Super brass. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
