How much prep work do you need to do to new brass? This box of 17 Remington brass is the first new bras I've ever had .... I always bought previously fired brass or borrowed some from my uncle before. :lol:

I would true the primer pocket and de burr the flash hole. Load and fire some rounds. Then I would outside neck turn and neck size,check for case length. Then I would work up a load that suited my needs.

Thanks. I am going to have to be a new flash hole debur tool as mine is too big to fit inside the 17 remington.

I have the RCBS, you can buy different size pilots. These cases do easily fit in to rifle correct? The bolt closes easily on a new case? If not you will need to full length resize.

I am going to full length size it so it will fit into my case trimmer properly. I didn't know if I needed to bother with the primer pocket and flash hole at this point or not. Thanks!

Yes you have to do it on all new brass. Get that solid carbide primer pocket uniformer I told you about from Sinclair. It's the best they make and if you don't drop it will last forever. Plus it fits into a drill so it's powered too. :)

I would get the flash hole deburrer from Sinclair too. They make it in .17 Cal and it works in all of my cases and again it fits my drill.....FAST :)

I better go look again... I looked last night (tired) and didn't see it. Maybe a good nights rest helped to clear the fog and I can find it this time.UPDATE:Found it! DB-1700

I agree, the one I have (which doesnt fit my 17) works great! I did a bunch of case work for the 25 WSSM late last night.As soon as this one gets here I will be ready to start loading the 17 Remington. I hope to be set up some where two weekends from now and spend a day breaking in barrels and trying out different loads. I've got 6 different loads worked up for my 22-250 I am going to test. Hopefully I wont shoot the Chrony!!!

That sounds like a plan. Get yourself a can of aerosol Gun Scrub or automotive brake cleaner too. That way after you clean your barrel you can flush out any remaining oil. It sure helps keep down the fliers. It can take up to fifty rounds to get oil out of a barrel after a cleaning. And until it's gone you can't get an accurate feel for your reloads. :)
