Does anyone here reload the Greek return brass from CMP? I prepped a few last night and the quality seems really good and the primer crimps are easily removed.

I have a lot of the brass. I've processed a lot of it, but not reloaded any of it. It sized beautifully, and the crimps came out well for me also.

On its initial firing, the brass gave sticky extraction in 1903 Springfield chambers. Extraction was fine in Garands. For all that, it had no problem with bending rims. I wonder whether it will be sticky as to extraction on the second firing.

After running the numbers, it's cheaper for me to buy more HXP from the CMP than to reload it. (or darn close... not enough to justify the add'l reloading costs.) However, the guys at the CMP forum like the HXP brass.
