Thanks for the info, LD...I have swaged a number of .308 Mil brass and havent noticed a problem,...yet......But then again, I never took time to measure the primer pockets either..
If the primers went in easily enough and stayed there it OK that was good enough...
...Most of the mil stuff I load for bangers (grandson loves to pull the trigger with M4 or DPMS AR.)..The 'good stuff' I ususally will load in commercial cases, pref. Winchester.
I got several hundred Mil cases that I will need to swage soon, both .308 and 5.56 ....Although I seperate by manuf. , I dont go as far to seperate by year..I try to keep all LC , WCC and FC headstamp... anything else goes in a bucket by itself.
Im nearly through sorting an almost full 5gal bucket of assorted 9mm that a friend gave me...Id say about 30% of this is mil...Being a cheep SOB, I will prob use the RCBS tool to remove the crimp on these rounds...I have used a hand held champher tool before I became 'mechanized".
