Hello, I've only been reloading ammo for my pistol for a little while. Been loading for my rifle for a few years now. Had a few questions... First, with my hotter loads, I'm getting some knicks in the brass (ejector?) Are these an issue when reloading and is their anyway to prevent them? (Heavier recoil spring?) Closeup in first picture. Secondly, how does this brass look? I worked up to a max load per the book with 155gr XTP's, 11.5gr of 800x and CCI 300's. I don't have a large bulge like some pictures I've seen, just a pretty evenly expanded case. Last photo is of the primers. The one looks like it has a hole, it's just the lighting. Thanks for the help! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
