WARNING: Improperly reloaded ammunition can cause serious personal injury. Reloading should only be done by competent adults after proper instruction. Always wear safety glasses when reloading and consult current powder data guides. Since reloading operations are beyond our control, we disclaim all liability for any and all damages that may result and assume no liability or responsibility, expressed or implied.
LEAD WARNING: Discharging firearms in poorly ventilated areas, cleaning firearms, or handling ammunition may result in exposure to lead and other substances known to cause birth defects, reproductive harm, and other serious physical injury. Work in adequate ventilation at all times. Wash hands thoroughly after exposure. DO NOT reuse any containers.
ALL BRASS, new and once fired, must be thoroughly inspected and resized. Inspect product for correct caliber and primer size, as incorrect caliber or “bad” brass will ship occasionally. Removing crimped primers with a standard die may damage your die. US Reloading Supply is not liable for damage to your equipment under any circumstances.
Once Fired Brass (OFB) is NOT new brass, but an ammunition/firearms industry term that loosely describes used brass cases. Many include military casings and foreign brands. Although called “once” fired, the actual number of times fired is unknown. OFB may have slight imperfections such as minor dings, dents, or bent mouths. Most flaws can be easily removed during resizing. What cannot be removed during resizing may be removed upon your first firing. OFB is mixed commercial and military headstamps (usually shown in mm) and may have crimped pockets.
Tarnished or Dark Brass and Bullets. Occasionally, brass and bullets will come from the manufacturer tarnished or with spots or discolorations. This does not affect the quality of the component and can be easily removed by tumbling or using steel wool. If only using the brass or bullets for decoration; never intending to be fired, a product such as Brasso can be used to enhance their shine. Be aware that products such as Brasso contain ammonia which is known to harden brass and sometimes cause split cases when fired. Do NOT use such products for brass or bullets that will be loaded and fired. Darkened brass (typically once fired) is usually caused by being left in a cleaning solution too long. This does not affect the quality of the brass, and the color should return to normal after being fired and cleaned a few times. Discolored or tarnished bullets are usually caused by the manufacturing using stock that has been stored for a long period of time.
Load Data and Velocities. Check the manufactures website for important load data and max velocities for their product. This information changes from time to time, so should always be checked prior to reloading.
