243 Pull-Down Brass

By DAVID O. on May 26, 2019
I've been handloading on a regular basis for 10 years, have 7 presses, load for 28 calibers of rifle & handgun, as well as 12, 20 & 410 gauge. I will usually not comment on something if its negative; however, I can't get over to the computer fast enough to through some some crap into the fan about what I received. I don't know if these other people that commented really looked closely at their brass or not, but I had 36 out of 100 that were -total- rejects due to either fully split necks, or very deep gouges to the shoulder and/or body! And it doesn't stop there... I had 12 additional ones that had a bulge at the top of the neck (which did not pull-out concentrically, so I'll have to trim them back below spec, but I'll OK these 12 due to the price I paid). I do -not- blame the quality of Federal cases, nor Grafs for this issue; however, I really don't care how many other companies use this procedure for pulling-bullets, but it's safe to say that its far-to-aggressive!!! If you have inexperienced handloaders putting this stuff together that can't spot something adverse, then getting a split neck under fire is minimal, but getting a case failure (although most guns have pressure release outlets for this) can be dangerous both to you and those around you! Don't give this a second thought – move on to some other brass!

A few bent case mouths but for the price I can throw a couple away.

Federal .243 win. pull-down brass

By Fred N. on Feb 11, 2019
Very disappointed. Of the 99 pieces I received, 15 had split necks or shoulders and 5 had unreparable dings. The ones with dings don't bother me, but 15 of 99 with splits makes the whole lot suspect! I don't propose to load any of the lot. I hope to exchange it for Starline brass and pay the difference.

For the most part, the brass is good. You should neck size to ensure consistent bullet retention. There are approximately 4-6 cases per hundred that have damaged necks. About half can be salvaged but the others are just too far gone. All in all, a good deal IF you understand that you need to examine and neck size each case.

It's a good deal for the price when you look at what else is available out there. Out of 200 rounds I had 3 bent case mouths that were not salvageable. But they sent me 201 cases so the net loss was 2. Reloaders looking for maximum accuracy may not like these, but they are fine for everyday use.
