Broken brass

Recommended Posts

Have you ever had the neck of a brass (243)  break off completely and stay in your sizing die?

I had plenty of lube on the brass.

The die is fine it looks more like metal fatigue.

I have had many splits between the shoulder and the case mouth, but never had one pull off. But I've also been shooting the same 200 cases or so more times than I care to admit, and I don't anneal. 

I think you might have turned a nut loose in front of the press.........:harhar1[1]:
