.17 Rem. brass ? for Buckrun

Discussion in 'Reloading, Target Shooting, and Firearms' started by Catfish, Dec 18, 2002.

  1. I got out 300 rounds of new brass for the .17 Rem. today. I usually don`t turn the necks on brass for a factory chamber, but this stuff had a sharp lip that was to far back for the burring tool to take off so I had to run it through the neck turner. Has anyone else ran into that? This is the first time I can recall that I`ve ever seen this.

    You mean the burr was on the outside and down the neck where the deburing tool couldn't touch it? I need to get some more brass for my .17. I have been shooting factory loads but I haven't been getting much shooting latley so the brass hasn't been adding up very fast.

  3. Buckrun,
    Just go buy new brass. It`s cheaper to just buy 100 rounds or so of new brass and load it than to buy ammo to get brass. The amount of work on the brass is the same and you eather do it or you don`t. There is a guy at the Lima show that carries .17 Rem. brass all the time and he is about as cheap as you will find it. I been buying brass, bullets and used to buy powder from him for about 20 years and you can trust him.

    Is it Howard? I think I will get some at the next show.
  5. Yep, seems Like everyone knows Howard.
