  • Factory crimp marks remain on PRVI brass after FL resizing, etc.. Any problem?

    This case is once fired right out of my chamber....

    This is after FL resizing, trimming, conditioning, and reloaded.

    The crimp marks remain and I wonder if this is something that will contribute to neck splitting after only a couple of reloads (or just one).

    I have not noticed it being an issue. I guess it would depend on the level of the load. I'm mostly a cast shooter so I tend to not stress brass too much. Just make sure to prep the mouth good, trim chamfer etc.

      After a few shootings, resizings, and the requisite trimming,, it'll be gone.

      Not a problem.

        happens with other brands too, no big deal.

          That will " grow" out when you fire it a few times

            I run everything at full tilt pressures and have yet to experience a split in that region. I've had splits at the shoulder neck junction, but that is unrelated to the factory crimps. Mine usually get trimmed of or just ironed out with a a few loads, turning helps a little bit also. Honestly though, I don't usually think about those crimp indentations, cause it doesn't really matter.

              My brass never "grows" long enough to trim it off, nor do crimp marks ever "iron out" after repeated sizings. I never experience brass failures at the mouth of the case, only longitudinal neck splits after work hardening. The only way they will go away is to over-trim length, or outside trim neck diameter.
