    Short Brass

    Was given 50 pcs. of 6BR brass that was trimmed to short,about 1.488 to 1.4995
    I trim my brass to 1.1550,I hate throwing any Lapua brass out as the brass in question was only fired once.
    My question is, will it harm the rifle chamber if I use this ?

    just ensure you clean the chamber neck well.

    Don't mix them with other brass of a different lot and length, just shoot them by themselves. My self I wouldn't, I don't think you are saving a few bucks and get them mixed with good brass.......if you do get the carbon out of the neck before you shoot longer ones...... jim
