Hello everyone!

I have something that I would like your help on here. I had picked up my brass after shooting at the range which is outdoors. After bringing them back home and cleaning them some ( More like a quick wipe down ) I had noticed even before the cleaning that there is small amount of scratching on the brass.

Yes, It is once fired BTW

The brass are Remington and also Magetch. Both of them were shot out of the same gun which is a PT-145 Pro. The barrel is 3.25. In case that helps with anything....

The two first pictures are Remington and the next two are Magtech. Let me know if this is something that SHOULD end up at the scrapyard or is ok for reloading a few more times.

To what are you referring? Those small nicks in the extractor groove? Those are on every round that comes out of most 45's. The brass in that area is at it's thickest point, it won't perforate. Besides the 45 acp is a very low pressure round.

If you saw some of my OLD 45 brass, you'd be amazed. And yes, I will load it till it splits the neck, or I lose it.

Okay! I was concerned! Lol. I guess not so much anymore.
Thank's for clearing that up. I read the Lymans manual at the beginning and I guess something's kinda confused me with it came down to something like this.

If you don't want to reload perfectly good brass, then mail them to me...I'll even pay the postage. :) :) :)

Thank you for all the replys to this. Being it would be my first time reloading, I would just like to make sure I do not use something potentionaly dangerous and have a accident that could have been easily avoided.

Art Eatman,

Thank you. And yes, It has been answered.
