38 Super brass sizing problems

Recommended Posts

If I understand correctly these are rounds, once-fired & range pick-up, that you've loaded but not fired so the chamber in your gun isn't a factor (at this point anyway). If the range pick-up brass has a number of reloads on it, was shot out of a poorly supported/over sized chamber barrel or was just loaded REALLY hot.... that may be the source of the more significantly bulged brass. If it's bulged down by the extractor groove nothing but a Case-Pro will straighten that out (in my experience). A quick way to weed them out is to set your digital calipers at ~ .386" or what ever will fit in your case-gauge/chamber and check the cases down by the groove where the die stops. If they won't slide in the calipers toss 'em... that should be fairly quick.
