Where to buy?

This is a discussion on Where to buy? within the Reloading forums, part of the Sniping Related category; I use CCI 400, 450, 200, and 250 in almost everything. Never found a use for the BR models....

    This is good to know because I went with cci 250s from the local academy. While I'm waiting on my new redding fl resizing die I decided to compare some once fired brass I have. The head space measurement for my chamber is 2.119. I have 8 pieces of brass that measure 7 thousandths less than that which in my opinion is not acceptable. My question is what should I do with those pieces of brass? Chunk them or try to fire them again to see if they will grow enough to be resized? Thanks

    7 thousandths isn't really that big of a deal. If a guy wants brass properly formed on first firing, then you need to seat the bullet slightly into the lands to ensure the case head stays firmly pushed against the bolt face. You could easily salvage those cases by doing that. Really, no special steps will be necessary with that small of a set back as it will easily sort itself out upon firing. When you start getting up toward 20 thousandths, then you for sure will need to approach it as if you were fire forming for an AI.

    I'd just load them and shoot them. Then measure again. Unless you have insufficient firing pin protrusion, excessive primer seating depth, or worse yet both, that .007" won't be an isssue in getting the round to light off. 50-60 kpsi will push the shoulder right out with no problem. It becomes a problem when this measurement climbs into the "teens" as it can with some dies that are improperly adjusted.
