Blasting ammo/ brass


Recommended Posts

So I came across a deal of about 700 pieces for 50 bucks of mixed lc and remington brass. I usually just load hornady to try to be accurate.

My question is for this stuff knowing the case thickness will very, with a known low grain load and not caring about accuracy to much would it be ok to load all the brass at let's say 42grns of 4064. Purpose of this ammo is just fun and to store away for when ever we have to bug out into the wilderness

  Yes , that will be fine , but make some test loads to see how they shoot . 


  Here is a 4064 load I shot the other day with my new Barrel mounted Chronograph . I may have to retest all my loads with this new device .

 42.5 gr. IMR 4064

 Avg. Vel. - 2628 fps
