of 500, lost 3 cases. Plenty of tar

I tumbled 250 at a time in polishing media, then lubed and ran them through an RCBS X-die. Had to clean the neck expander every 30 rds or so because of the tar, as James F notes in his review. Of 500 cases, I lost exactly 3 due to split neck or distorted shoulder.
Maybe a third mike exactly at or .001" over HTC length per RCBS Precision Mic. The rest show 1 to 3 thousandths under nominal HTC.
Primer pockets too small to use w/o Reaming in 1/3 of cases

I purchased 100 rounds. Discovered that 27/100 needed primer pockets reamed before I could re-prime them. Just so You know before ordering. You may need to order a primer reamer if you don’t have one, and plan on reloading the brass after you use the primer that comes in the brass.
The brass cleaned up well with walnut media. Most of the cases were LC and Nato marked. A few were not.
Quality of LC pull down brass July 2016

I bought 5 packs. Be aware 80% of mine had the tar sealed necks. So if you intend to run an expander through the necks, you are going to have issues. I removed it with Xylene.
I wound up losing 16 casing due to laps in the necks. This is unusually high. But extras were included, so I wound up with 494 good rounds prior to first firing.
Quite a few were heavily tarnished, more so than I would see for this recent production. Overall I'm happy, but just wanted everyone to know what to expect.
