Brassman is a good place to buy brass.JohnCollins said:I've found a source for once-fired brass.
Lake City uses the hardest alloy and the case walls are thicker than the rest. This is why LC brass is typically sought after, as in most rifles it will exhibit longer case life (not always, as is the case with the M14, but usually). Don't get too worked up about LC Match brass if you find it, either...Materially and dimensionally speaking, LC Match and LC is identical. Only difference is, LC Match has annealed necks and no primer crimp. The primer crimp is easy to remove, and one can anneal their own necks if they feel the need. Keep in mind if you use LC brass, that as the case walls are thicker, you will need to down load them a little; the same load in other brass will be hotter and potentially dangerous in LC.JohnCollins said:There's Federal, Lake City, Winchester, and Winchester Military (WCC 2004). Is there one in particular I should buy?
I wouldn't, in fact, DON'T. I can guarantee you'll see pressure sign's. Pull the bullets and reduce that load by 1 grain minimum.stiffler said:before I invest in a bullet puller, I guess I may shoot a couple rounds of the c b c stuff, and check for excessive pressure signs :?
