223 Once Fired Brass Casings For Sale
|223 Remington Once Fired Brass casings in packages of 100, cleaned and polished. Once Fired Brass (OFB) is local range brass that we receive on a weekly basis. The website inventories are updated regularly but may not totally reflect our stock due to the delay between receiving the brass and processing it.
The once fired brass is mixed commercial 223 Remington and 5.56x54 NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) brass sourced from local ranges. The 5.56 NATO military specification (mil-spec), is a thicker brass case wall and a longer throat length. By using a thicker case, higher pressures can be used for this cartridge. Due to these differences, although the 223 and 5.56 will fit in either gun, you should never shoot a 5.56 round in a 223 rifle as the pressures are higher than the gun was built for.
Some reloaders suggest weighing cases and that the 5.56 is heavier, and in many cases they are, however, some manufacturers use denser and more brass in the headstamp or webbing areas, so this is not a reliable method of identifying cases. Ensure you always use the correct load for the casings according to your data manual and do not interchange the loads as that could not only damage your rifle but also cause serious injury or even death.
Crimped primers can be found in both commercial 223 Remington brass and 5.56 brass although it is usually found in the 5.56 rounds. These can be identified by looking at the primer area and 3 crimp marks on the outside of the pockets. Some brass also has a red or green varnish on the primer, this is usually added by the manufacture to ‘seal’ the primer and avoid water contamination. Normally this is seen in military or law enforcement ammunition and is not seen in civilian ammunition very often.
Should the primer pockets be crimped, care must be given to removing those primers as they take extra pressure by your press to remove the primer. If not done properly the a normal decapping pin will snap, and heavy-duty decapping pins are suggested. Once the primer has been removed, then the pocket must be swaged to remove the crimped area from the primer pocket to allow a new primer to be seated. If this is not done, then new primers will not seat correctly and if too much pressure is exerted, the primer may explode. Swaging is an easy process and many manufacturers sell tools for this ranging in price from a few dollars, up into the hundreds of dollars.
