Good value brass
By Joseph G.

I shoot a M1A National Match in competition, and consequently I go through a lot of Lake City brass. I like the new production Lake City 308 brass, but that seems to be back ordered for a while. I have found the once fired stuff to be less than ideal because most of it has been fired in oversized machine gun chambers and suffers from weakening at the head. This brass does not have that problem at all. It is slightly tarnished and several cases have some residual powder granules stuck to the inside of the case, but for pull downs it is pretty good. Just make sure that you inspect each case carefully before loading. I sized it in a Forster National Match die with the decamping pin removed.All of the primers ignited properly. Obviously, you will need to remove the crimp after the initial firing. I shoot 168 SMKs on top of IMR 4895 or IMR 4064 in matches, but I have found that the Hornady 150g FMJBT on top of XX.Xg of IMR 4895 seated to 2.810" with a Wilson arbor seating die makes a dandy practice round out to 300 yards. Not as accurate as the SMKs, but pretty good and significantly less expensive to load for practice. Overall, I'd say that this brass is a good value. Shoot it once, tumble and do a full case prep, and it's ready for a match. Hope this helps. Be blessed. Mike
