    This is a very good thread

    We use our guns so often that we can forget these things can be quite deadly!!!

    We have all seen holes in our canopies. Most of these were accidents.

    Just saying

    You might try a company called Ventura Munitions. I no nothing about them except they advertise to have 32-40 Winchester ammo.

    I agree, Al. Back in those days, shooters like me knew nothing about annealing. However, these cases held up after fire forming for many reloads. We just hunted and killed deer. Someone should...

    We are all gentlemen here, or try to be. We see an uncommon problem and try to find the truth. That is what makes this forum interesting. Sometimes a little humor happens.
  6. All I know is something happened

    .0003 inch is not much. However, given that much in each cycle for 40 years,that would be quite a bit. Your example gives a swing of 59 F. I know that is more than an average daily swing but if...

    Pete, I think that that is exactly the reason to anneal. The first thing the man from Sierra suggested was to anneal.

    Someone who has the time should store some never fired brass in their...

    I was like you, Wilbur, until this episode. My friend didn't believe this at first either. We carefully examined all the reloaded cases and the cases that were fired with a good light and a...

    I agree, Al. It pays to have steenkin brilliant friends when you think like me. You are one of mine even if you don't know it.
  11. Yes, it was necessary.

    Mr. Antelope,

    Yes, it was necessary. When I said this was a 25/06 AI I was trying not to confuse anyone any more than necessary. It was and extended version of the 25/06 AI. Same shoulder but...
  12. What ever happened, there is a physical reason.

    I spoke with an "Expert" at Sierra and his answer was, "Yes, Brass hardens with age". He suggestion was to anneal the brass or throw it away and get some more. So There you have it.

    A friend of...

    I agree Doug. Let me add that these boxes of brass were so old that they had no bar code on them. I have learned to approach a problem like this with an open mind. It could be other factors.
  14. Does brass become brittle with age just sitting in a box?

    I have a friend who asked me to load some bullets for a rifle that he is giving to his son. This rifle is a 25/06 AI and is 40 years old and in very good shape. This rifle was used for hunting only...

    I have to both agree and respectfully disagree somewhat. In this test the velocity is a good indicator of the uniformity. I agree there are too many variables in play for the actual groupings to be...

    I am very happy with my new purchase.

    Thanks for the advice. I ordered a pair of Pro Ears Gold NRR 30 from Amazon after searching what was on the web and they work just great. With my hearing aids out and with ear plugs I could not...

    Oh, the pleasure of being simple.

    I think a better question would be are there any bad bullets for the 6.5 CM. I have a Browning X Bolt with a wood stock that I bought over a year ago because the beautiful wood stock caught my eye. ...

    Reading a thermometer is the check

    Tunermi, I will first admit I have never annealed anything so I am learning my way through this interesting thread. From what I have learned from reading this is that one needs to raise the...

    Good thread

    This has been one of the best threads ever. Plenty of information and little BS. I am not sure that I will ever anneal any cases myself but I have a better concept of what it is. For what it is...
