Have you ever had issues with some 40 cal because of special neck do not allow for the tollerance of brasss stretch with reloads?I have never had any problems loading .40, (or shooting my re-loads in my Beretta 96 Brigadier)
Its one of the main calibers I re-load.
I do have a preference for winchester brass, but thats just me.
I like to shoot blazer CCI pretty well. (I also like the price). What's best brass brand you've reloaded?Well, I am no expert by any means. I have not been re-loading that long, but I have had zero problems reloading any .40 brass.
I police up my own and I also pick up stuff that others have left behind - yeah I am a scavenger. (If I am not shooting in my backyard, then I shoot at an outdoor range and once people drive off, I figure the brass is abandoned.)
So far I have re-loaded winchester, cci, speer, and remington brass.
Some brass has been on the ground for a while, so I wash out the dirt/mud, inspect them, tumble them shiney, inspect them again, then prime and load them.
I have a hornady lock 'n load single stage and use the hornady dies.
I put a light roll crimp on the bullet when I seat them.
If Beretta is 'factory loads only', well too bad. (way out of warranty anyways)
I have not encountered any 'special crimp' - or if I have, it did not present any problems.
Yea, I know. Was just talking about what I shoot cause it's clean and inexpessive.CCI blazer's aluminum cases aren't reloadable. They have berdan primers. Easy way to tell is look at the flash hole in the case. If there's more than 1 hole in therem they are scrap metal not reloadable brass
