    There was some one that had done it on a one-time basis. IMHO It's not a good idea.

    Not a good idea and I believe the cases are marked NR which means not reloadable.Brass takes many more reloads than aluminum and is not worth the risk.It only takes one goof and your gun and possibly something else is gone for good.Toss em to avoid the temptation.

    I have always heard that was a no go.

    Aluminum does not resize like Brass.
