    Are they ok to reload? I searched a lot and go a lot of yes and no answers.

    Never had an issue with Aguila 9mm brass. I do make sure not to seat the bullet below the cannelure in the case.

    They load just like any other Boxer primed brass.

    Hope this helps.

    I've loaded a good bit in 38 special and 45 ACP. Never had an issue.

    Thanks for the info! That's the first time I have come across what almost looked like the case was perforated.

    Do you mean by the cannelure? Lots of cases have cannelures, and they just iron out with repeated firings.

    Hope this helps.

    Eventually the cannelure goes away I can barely see it in some of my brass. I've reloaded hundreds of rounds with them.

    I just recently started reloading so that was the first time I'd ever seen it. Most of the brass I reload was a bunch of blazer brass and some Winchester. I have loaded about 600 rounds so far and I just bought 1000 once fired brass and it had about ten of them in the lot. Some of the Aguila brass has it and some didn't. I just found that odd and figured I'd ask to be on the safe side:)

    I've seen this in Winchester 357 Mag brass. I've not had any issues with any of those.

    I bought some 45acp Aguila back in the mid '90s. When I went to reload it, I found some cases wouldn't hold a jacketed bullet very well (the setback was strong with those). So I cull them out, along with some old mil-surp brass I have, and use the Missouri Bullet IDP #4-XD with them. No problems at all. Those bullets have a cannelure in the area of the case mouth that allows enough crimp to catch the bullet and keep it from moving. I didn't have to change anything with the crimp to get a good/safe crimp on the bullet and still allow the case to headspace properly.
