I'm pretty sure those have the crimped primer pockets... I don't even try to load those.

I keep them though. I'll get a swager one day and run them through that and they'll be fine.

Primer pocket is crimped, but nothing two turns with a uniforming tool won't take care of... I load them quite a bit.

I have a bunch in 45. They are crimped, I believe anything NATO is crimped but I could be wrong. I know the wcc stuff I have needed the crimp removed. It has held up fine in the 1911s.

If you paid for them,I hope the crimps been removed. I would never pay for crimped brass as there is plenty of commercial brass out there. Just too much hassle to decrimp them.

I thought WCC was Winchester's military line. If you got them from TJ, I'll bet they were processed and the crimp has already been removed. Should be very good brass...try not to lose them on the first firing.

According to TJ, yes they were de-capped and the primer pocket reamed. On a similar subject anyone know what powders the ammo companies use. The fired brass I got from TJ has a large number of winchester cases, and it seems they use a clean burning powder after 20-30min soaking in vinegar and a blast of compressed air those cases come out really clean.

Probably use a bulk powder which us poor mortals can not get.

It's a pretty good bet the WCC brass was loaded with Power Pistol or by it's bulk name, "Bullseye 84". See .pdf below that Alliant used when PP was 1st released.

Interesting read. Just like they said, I like PP for good velocity and moderate cost due to it's low charge weight but high volume to acheive the velocity.

TJ's brass has already been cleaned AFAIK. I retumbled the .45acp I bought from him, because I thought I could get it cleaner...but it probably wasn't necessary.
