    I've been hoarding .40 brass again, it's about all I can find at the range in any abundance. Win brass has been doing very well in my .40 loads in my converted G-29, but I find more CBC and FC brass in the grass.

    After reading the thread on .40 FC/Federal brass, I've moved them to the emergencies only category.

    So I'm left with some Win and buku CBC, what's the consensus on CBC .40 brass???

    CBC is Magtech's headstamp. I've never had any reloading issues with it.

    :sigh:

    Federal stamped .40 is fine. FC stamped .40 is a fool's game.


    You might want to stash back some AMERC for "emergencies" too. :freak:

    CBC brass has worked fine for me for .380, 9mm, .40 and .45. Seems like good brass.
