Re: Does new primed brass need to be resized?
I never understood the primed brass thing in the first place? why would you even want primed brass, I like to know what I'm using and do it myself, it's such a non-time consuming step, it's just never appealed to me. But even if it claims it's ready to go, I don't trust anyone but me so I'm gonna take the extra step and run it through the resizer die even if it doesn't contact just to ensure my bullets will seat correctly.
seems common with new shotgun hulls too, lots of primed hulls for sale.
new brass is nice though, I buy new .357 brass, usually winchester or starline, as .357 ammo cost is thru the roof along with everything else.
.40 and .45 I just scrounge and buy in bulk once fired as I shoot so much of it. one good trip thru the tumbler and it looks plenty good enough.
