federal brass

A friend of mine gave me 100 pcs. of federal once fired 270 wsm brass, I'm not much of a federal fan, and hears probably why, I trimmed, resized, de-primed cleaned the primer pockets. I use a hand rcbs primer tool, I used Win LRM mag. primers, there was no resistance when seating the new primer ? I tried different brand of primers, same thing , you could literally push these primers in with your thumb. Has anyone else experienced that? Im going to get some Win. brass.

Re: federal brass

I have reloaded different calibers in Federal brass and had no problems.

Re: federal brass

I've never ad that happen with any brand of brass. I think I would look for something else as well.

Re: federal brass

Rather than getting new brass, try remington 9 1/2 large rifle primers, they're a little bit bigger and fit more snug than other primers. If u tried them already and they didn't work I'd get some new brass.

Re: federal brass

Hi Cpt. Hook, I tried CCI, Fed, And Win LRM that day. I notified Fed. about this and with out saying they had a problem, mail them back, so I did and yesterday in the mail i got 200 pcs. of virgin brass from them. Everything fits snug as a bug in them. I MIC'd some of the spent primers and compared them to others that I fished out of my spent peimer catcher and the where 5-7 thousand lrager in dia.. Bob

Re: federal brass

The guy who gave you this brass... They were loaded too hot and opened the pockets. Some factory ammo are really hot.

Re: federal brass

Excess pressure, i.e., hot loads is the only thing that can open primer pockets. If the primer fits and does not fall out, use it. Just so no residue excapes around the outside.

Tip: Try Russian made Wolf primers. They are, in fact, a tad wider than US made. Find them here:
