The once fired brass is mixed commercial 223 Remington and 5.56x54 NATO (military) casings in packages of 100. Brass is washed, then sorted by size only, no other inspection is performed. Steel and aluminum cases are removed. These cases could have minor dings, dents, slightly bent mouths, or other slight imperfections, but most flaws can be easily removed during resizing or should be shot out upon your first firing. If you are expecting a perfect case, then you would probably be happier with our new brass, these are good, but not perfect. These are one of your least expensive options when doing bulk reloading. Additionally, any brass, new or once fired, should always be inspected, resized (with your dies) and trimmed prior to loading.
The website inventories are updated regularly but may not totally reflect our stock due to the delay between receiving the brass and processing it. "Once fired brass", is NOT new brass, but an ammunition/firearms industry term that describes used brass cases. We don't know how many times these have been fired and the only way to know for sure it is "once fired" is to open a new box and fire one yourself.
Some brass sizes may include crimped primers. When working with crimped cases, care must be given to ensure the primers are removed correctly and swaged. If you do not understand the difference between these types of cases, please contact us for information prior to ordering. When working with crimped pocket primers, be aware that removing crimped primers with a standard die may damage your die. We are not liable for damage to your equipment under any circumstances.
