Re: Winchester LR Primers/new style.
I had neck cracking issues with WW brass, too (300WSM). I got credit for them and used it to buy primers. Had three duds from a brick. They gave me such a run around to send them back and replace them that I just keep using them. One failed to detonate when I pulled the trigger on a buck in South Carolina a couple years ago. Luckily, he was focused on his intended girlfriend who was trying to avoid him, and he didn't notice me enough to care. I got a new round in and walloped him anyway, lol.
Had two more like it occur at the range.
Since then, not issues. I've used about half the brick. I should just set it aside and buy new ones and use that brick only for range work, I guess.
I have WW brass for my 270 and have had no issues (knock on wood), other than the pockets are getting loose faster than I think they should, as I'm not running it THAT hot. No cracked necks yet....
