by the way that 55gr soft point is nasty on a deer and critters. Dropped 3 in the cotton all with one shot each. and hit one running at 150yds, she folded up and took a dirt nap..

Loaded up some 68gr BTHP and goin to try them out on a ladder test this weekend i hope..

Just out of curiosity, how much were these 1000pc lots when you bought them? I see they're $150 now. Seems like they were more like $120 when I almost ordered some a few weeks ago.

Widener's has "once fired" Lake City 5.56 brass for $89.00 per thousand. I've purchased about 6,000 from them over the past year and the brass has been good. Most of what I got was LC-08 brass. There will be a few civilian brass and a mixture of other Lake City brass in each bag. On one purchase of 1,000, I had a lot of dented brass and e-mailed Widener's about it. Four days later I got a package of 500 replacement brass, no charge

Are you all having to drop your powder charges some loading military brass with thicker case walls...or is that a "myth"

I wish we could get about 10 of us together for some of these "bulk buys"

I need some 223 and .308

None of my charges are hot enough for it to matter.
unless its for tracers, then it flatens the primers :D

I need some 308 brass also 'neck
