Product Information

Remington cartridge cases are carefully drawn from specially-alloyed brass to provide consistently exact internal volume and resistance to case stretching and brittleness. Primer pocket tolerances are held to .001", and closely monitored case neck annealing ensures easier re-sizing and longer reloading life. New, unprimed brass. This is not loaded ammunition. Bulk brass should be full-length sized, trimmed and chamfered before loading.

Preparation:
  • Due to the manufacturing process and/or shipping, case mouths may not be perfectly round. To ensure a round case mouth, cases must be sized (or have the expander ball of the sizing die run through case neck) and deburred/Chamfered prior to loading.

    Notes:
  • Also referred to as the 5.56 NATO
  • A light "staining" may be found on the case neck of new brass. This is due to annealing. Annealing is a process, performed by the manufacturer, which involves rapid heating to a specified temperature followed by rapid cooling. This process imparts cases with the proper hardness to securely hold a bullet as well as gives flexibility to expand and contract upon firing and repeated forming. The "staining" is a residue from this process. This stain may be removed by tumbling before loading.
  • Nickel plated brass is not suitable for case forming as it tends to crack due to hardness greater than standard brass.
  • Nickel plated brass is harder on reloading dies due to this greater hardness than brass.
  • The nickel plating process deposits a layer of nickel on the brass. Many reloaders like its appearance. Nickel plating is very hard and very corrosion resistant, but it has tradeoffs. This nickel will crack if it's worked excessively during reloading. Too much neck flare or full length sizing may cause the nickel plating to flake off. This makes nickel plated brass unsuitable for fireforming wildcat or Ackley improved cases. Nickel plating has been known to be very abrasive on reloading dies.
