I've got some brand new 454 brass and don't imagine that I'll own another 454. I'd like to trim it down and use it for some heavier 300gr 45 Colt loads.

Anyone run into any problems doing this? Any hints or tricks. All I've got is a Lyman case trimmer.

Thanks! :D

I like Winchester primers and have some WSR primers, think they'd be fine? I'm using H110 and I know that magnum primers are beneficial for ball powders but since Winchester primers run a little hot.............

Parson - that certainly is an option. I think I've got about a dozen of them. Anybody want to trade? ;)

I have Remington, PMC, Winchester and maybe some Starline I'd trade you, and I'll throw in a box of Uncle Ben's Instant Grits :mrgreen:
Well, I've got 50 cases marked F-A (Federal ?). A couple of them have some tarnish, the rest are clean. I've had them for some time and they aren't as shiny as they once were. None of them have ever been loaded.

I am partial to Starline, but would take whatever you didn't want. I ain't very picky. ;)
