RWS uses this same high quality brass in the production of their ammunition. This 45ACP brass features a Small Pistol Primer Pocket with the RWS headstamp. Small primer 45 ACP brass is popular with reloaders using small pistol primers in other calibers. They can stock fewer types of primers and change calibers faster on progressive presses. New, unprimed brass. This is not loaded ammunition. Bulk brass should be full-length sized, trimmed and chamfered before loading.
RWS components mirror the same quality and attention to detail as their sister company, Norma, as they are both subsidiaries of RUAG Ammotec.
Caliber: 45 ACP
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.
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.
