  • I should keep my brass separated in the original lots but somehow they seem to get intermingled. Does anyone ascertain that all

    I should keep my brass separated in the original lots but somehow they seem to get intermingled. Does anyone ascertain that all reloads are from a specific brass lot number for field use, not talking about competition?

    I only reload for my deer rifle which is a .264 win mag. So my brass life is extremely short. I have stopped reusing brass altogether. I have noticed that since I quit reusing brass my groups tightened up slightly. Not much, maybe .1" but, they are tighter.

      I try to keep them seperate but I always seem to get some mixing. Don't seem to notice any difference in accuracy in hunting laods.

        i agree with Beekeeper, my brass usually ends up getting mixed.

          For hunting loads I don't keep track of lots, just the number of times they've been loaded.

            I would keep the brands together Remington with Remington and Winchester with Winchester etc, but other than that, you shouldn’t have any problem. Just watch your overall case length and deformity around the web and neck!

              I keep them seperated by brand.

                Good question. My barber asked me why I handload for my 06 and not my sons 06. I told him 'I shoot more'. My son shoots a slide action 760 which I would have to size the case. I neck size my bolt action and shoot all the time. I'm not going to try and keep two bags of cases separate for reloading, especially since at 18 he has other more important things on his mind other than shooting. I can't imagine what it is.

                  I only separate by manufacturer for hunting. In load development, I weight each case and make sure that test group cases are all within 1 grain of each other for consistent burn and to make sure I am testing the powder and not the case capacity.
