WCC Headstamp

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if military WCC 9mm brass has a crimped primer, or does it reload like commercial brass? TIA, Doug

I am fairly certain it has crimped primer pockets.

Yes crimped primer.  Of course, a lot of range pickup are reloads and so the crimp may be gone....

The WCC headstamp was one of my leading causes of jams and crushed primers on my 650. Now that I run a 1050 I don't notice them at all...

I believe ALL military has a crimped primer.

 

I throw it all away, unless it looks like it's been reloaded    :)

Get a 1050 and stop throwing it away. 😁

Don't trash it just decrimp it. If you don't want a 1050 just get the dillon super swage 600.

It will be crimped unless it has already been decrimped and reloaded. Goodness, don't throw it away. Years ago I received two five gallon buckets of it. I mailed it to a forum member who ran it through his 1050 to swage the pocket for me. We worked out a deal for him to keep some of the brass in return.

Thanks everyone.  I was afraid it would be crimped.  I live next to an Army base that is auctioning 1612 pounds of 9mm brass, and I was considering bidding on it.  The fact that it has crimped primers is a deal breaker for me.  I appreciate everyone's input.  Doug

If you score it really cheap, buy it to resell to to your friends.

 

Guys with 1050s don’t mind military brass at all.
