sat down for another brass prep marathon on 30-06 rangebrass.
managed to break a decapping pin..
had a mix of regular commercial brass.. and some military with crimp. some of hte crimps were 'normal' and some were out of thios world.. litterally a raised ridge around an annular groove almost. I broke a decapping pin on one of those.. crimp is so hard i pierced a couple primers decapping them. to save decapping pins i took a shell holder and small jewlers screwdriver and just set those 5-10 aside and manuall decapped them on a piece of wood, then ran them back thru to size ( sized just fine )
what's with those huge grooved/ridged crimps?
while sorting my brass actually found 2-3 berdans which promptly went into the recycle box... also managed to find an amm mauser in the mess i picked up..
gonna have to make some more relaoding trays.. ran out of space on this batch. here's a qick pic as i was loading trays...
