Wiping down some range brass after tumbling and found this. What us it a sign of, head separation, or just a bulge. Fine bad etc.
Yes, I do use the Bulge Busters and they work very well. .380, 40 S&W and 45 ACP use the Carbide Factory Crimp die with the Bulge Buster Kit for those cartridges as they are straight wall cases. For 9mm Parabellum use the 9mm Makarov Carbide Factory Crimp die as the 9mm Parabellum case is a tapered case and the 9mm Parabellum Factory Crimp die has too long of a carbide ring for that case.mebe007 said:The brass looks exactly like the brass shown on the lee bulge buster thing. Anyone use that tool?
Caliber is .45 acp will look at primer once I get home
Sometimes that bulge near the head happens in some full auto weapons as well as the older Glock barrels.mebe007 said:When I say range brass. It's brass from the range most is mine but some is extra stuff that got swept up. I have just never seen that before so I was wondering. I've never seen anything come out of mt 1911 that looked like that
