    New .35 Remington Brass Has Arrived

    HI: I have a question for all you .35 Remington reloaders. I just got 50 rounds of .35 Remington brass from Midway. It looks good, some of the openings aren't perfectly round. Should I full-length resize all of these first? What's the best procedure to follow? I got some good advice from you guys on neck sizing my .35 Remington brass so they would chamber easier.

    Anyway, this is the first time I've bought new brass for my .35. Don't want to mess them up right off the bat or mess up the shoulder. Thanks in advance.

    SEMPER FI

    I always full length resize new brass. Even if it left the factory perfect , it can be dented , dinged, etc.. In fact I do all reloading steps on new brass except cleaning . I resize , ream out primer holes (only has to be done once), campher inside and out, and even once in a while have to trim some new brass after resizing.

    I do the same with new brass. I haven't had to trim any but I always full length resize it.

    I say just run it over the expander ball to straighten out the neck dents. Then load, fire, anneal, clean and do all that other stuff mentioned. That once-fired case is now ready for proper die fitting and accuracy.

    This is good advice But don't agree with from firing new brass for a 35R. not necessary. But would ad when I use NIB. brass I do all mention by CJ-5. But if necessary I'll trim off .005" below suggested trim length so that my bullet seat-er die adjusted to crimp will uniformly crimp. If you are using a Lee Factory crimp die it's not necessary because a LFC. die is forgiving and won't push in the shoulders.

    TNY

    PS although I don't agree with from firing NIB. 35R. brass and my reason is it's not necessary. Millions of 35 Rem. factory ammo have been fired through the years and all virgin brass used. I have never from fired virgin brass for a 35R. and have loaded hundreds of virgin brass (not counting fired brass) without a problem in any respect. I don't disagree with from firing NIB or brass of unknown chambers if you feel it to be necessary for your rifle. As said by Timray 35 Remington may have a good opinion if it is necessary.

    I agree with CaptMal and DP. Ahoy.........................New brass, I neck size only, to be able to set the bullet.

    Once fired brass from an unknown chamber, I FL size............After fireing that in my rifle, I neck size only.

    In checking the OA length, its seems that Neck Sized brass doesn't grow in length.............I can't remember the last time I needed to trim 35 Rem brass, and I check the length before each reload.

    Also, the 35 Rem headspaces on the small shoulder, so if you only neck size, you avoid the chance of setting the shoulder back, and getting misfires from light FP strikes.

    This has always worked for very well me. If you want more info, I suggest contacting 35 Remington.........he has made a science of reloading the 35 Rem.
