    Hey all

    I'm looking for some 7.62x51 or .308 to feed my m1a. Only interested in reloadable brass, no steel please. I have cash or trades

    Thanks

    I guess I should have paid more attention on the reloadable brass... I was going to mention factory rounds. My bad... have a great day

    On my mixed lot, I could include 200 once fired PPU unprocessed brass for an extra $25...

    $30 if you wanted it tumbled, but not deprimed.

    $35 if you wanted it deprimed & tumbled.

    I hear ya. Out of curiosity, I just now decapped a dozen of the Hirtenberger.
    Hadn't processed any .308/7.62 before.

    They are boxer primed, 1 flash hole. The pin on my hand depprimer (Franklin Arsenal) got stuck thrice, pulled it out twice.

    No idea on how to process the primer pocket for the crimps, or if you even have to.

    No idea if the flash hole is smaller than standard, as some interwebs folks have written. Or if it matters?

    So a dozen decapped, made a cup of coffee, figured out how to upload pics from that phone to PB and back down to here, all since your post. Not bad time wise considering I'd never done anything in that caliber.

    Pics in a sec...

    They look like heavy stakes on primer. I've had good luck with a Lee decapping die on mil brass :)

    And I'm getting ready to brew a cup myself :D

    Any idea if will I be able to use one on a Hornady Lock n Load AP, or should I get a single stage (been thinking on getting one anyways for processing...)?

    I would do it a head of time to avoid issues.

    I picked up one of the cheapo Lee presses for this kinda situation ;)

    Thanks, that's what I figured.

    I'll probably start, or post up a thread tomorrow after shift in the RE-loading section with these pics tomorrow after shift.

    I'm really interested to find out if this brass is good, and how much time would be involved to process if it is. Have a bunch.

    Apologies for pooping on your wanted post, but thanks for the tips!
