    Reading the thread below on case head separation got me thinking: has anyone created a visual guide to case damage? I've seen a lot of B&W photos in books, but not much in color and certainly nothing on the 'net that can cover the subject well. Maybe somebody here could build up a thread with pictures of various cases (this is the bright ring to look for when checking for "growing" brass, this is case head separation caused by xxx, this is light/medium/heavy crimp, this is a case dent using too much lube, etc.) and the admin could make it a sticky?

    Here is a good recent thread on the subject of case head separation.

    IMHO by the time you see a stretch ring, you have fired the case one too many times.

    Here is a thread with some crimp pics.
