    I went shooting yesterday with the fiance and came up with about a 2.5 gallon bucket full of various brass as usual. I ended up with a fair amount I reload for.

    My question is this...I found a few nickel plated .45 cases that were head stamped "Triton" or something similar. Anybody who what manufacturer uses this stuff? Ever heard of it before.

    It looks to be reloadable, but was just curious if anybody here has heard of it before.

    Awesome. Thanks very much for that. I was just wondering more or less who has used that before and if it worked like any other piece of reloadable brass. I.E. any sizing or priming issues or anything like that.

    Thanks! :wavey:

    I just checked, and they are .45 Auto +P cases. Weird. I never heard of them before.

    He's still going to be lonely, I think Triton went under a few years ago.
