We now offer high quality 9mm once fired NAS3 cases, which are supposed to last through 40 or more reloadings. Please consider leaving a review for this new product, and let us know how you like them!
NAS3 9mm cases are made by Shell Shock Technologies and according to SST are "50% lighter than brass cases, offer greater lubricity and will not abrade, clog, foul, wear-out or damage breach and ejector mechanisms. These cases offer greater corrosion resistance, higher tensile strength (2x stronger) and more elasticity than brass. NAS3 cases have been tested successfully by customers to pressures over 70k psi. NAS3 cases eject cool to-the-touch and can be picked up with a magnet."
SST states that NAS3 cases will not split, chip, crack or grow (stretch) and they are fully-reloadable using a set of S3 Reload dies. These reloading dies can be found here along with additional information, instructions and videos.
If you are interested in learning more about these cases, an article written by NRA Shooting Sports USA may be found here.
Our brass includes commercial and military casings. We do not sort by headstamp, manufacturer, case length, primer size, flash hole, crimp, etc, unless specifically stated above. OFB may have imperfections, such as minor dings, dents, or bent mouths. Most flaws can be easily removed during resizing or upon first firing. This does not mean they are unusable, it just means you must resize them and fire them to remove the dings. Please review this article for more information.
Brass casings are available in three different primer flash hole sizes: .057 small, .074 (standard), and .110 (50 BMG). Ensure you have the correct decapping pin when resizing/decapping, as there is no standard and manufacturers can use any size they want. The wrong size pin will make decapping difficult and break pins. Many having difficulty depriming think it is due to the crimp, however, sometimes it is due to a small flash hole.
Additionally, there is not a standard for primer sizes; manufacturers can and do use different sized primers in their products. Note: Federal has both large and small 45 ACP (Blazer is all small primer), as does Starline for their 6.5 CM, and many others do the same, 308s can also be in both large and small.
All purchases of brass are in "as-is" condition. We do not guarantee these for every application or bullet combination; they are intended for general reloading in a wide range of firearms. Regardless of our stock photos, some brass may be deprimed. If they are damaged and can't be used, we will replace them, with the exception of dirty bulk brass since we did not sort them.
