Found another today, powder drop was really tight and so was the bullet seating die. Tried the plunk test and it was a no go, wouldn't fit all the way into the chamber.

You are getting a pretty good idea why we don't like that brass!

I did notice that the case wall on the one that wouldn't fit in the chamber was .004" thicker that my other brass, and that there was a clear line around where the bullet ended in the case. Now I wonder if the others would have fit in the chamber normally?
