    I have learned my lesson on a couple of things myself. 308 and 06 brass are the hardest to make sure of. I used some 308 for wildcat rounds and found that about half had loos primer pockets. Ugg a lot of prep work and several annealing steps to get the brass formed down the drain. I am like you I wan to see the sealant and that military crimp. I would much prefer to take the time to remove the military crimp and know that I am working with once fired brass.

    What is a hill Jack? Do you mean a Liberal , Democrat , snow flake. I live in the hills and I know that Uncle Jim does also. Some of the smartest best reloaders and shooters live in the hills.

    I had A few hundred 556 like that I went through all the time of making 300 blk . Having a primer gauge would have been nice. Luckily there's a trick to peening them back but I'd only trust them for sub sonic. 😂

    Any brass that can't be used, can be recycled at the scrap yard. $$$$$

    Just a thought make you some cabinet handles out of the fubar brass. Or pull chains for ceiling fans etc. Doing same with 12 gauge fired hulls. Just offering. I also like Greek 06 ammo good stuff
