    I have a number of Agulia and WWB 45acp cases and I was wondering if these are suitable to reload for target practice? They were just 230gr ball rounds and are in pretty good shape. Most all of the WWB has turned neon blue/black down one side of them though, should I just junk those or are they cleanable?

    Those are good to go, err, I mean fuck no. Send them to me and I'll get rid of them for you.

    Only thing that aren't salvagable that isn't blatently fucked up are the aluminum casing. Dull grey crap.

    rgr, glad I didn't buy a bulk case of CCI then :bigthumb:


    roughly how many times could you reload a single case with normal target loads?
     
  5. Just inspect them when you reload them. You'll usually see cracks forming at the case mouth before they become a real problem. It depends on the particular case, as they're not all exactly alike.

    I know WWB reloads well, Agulia should also.

    As long as it is brass and properly primed you can reload it. When you check new ammo grab one from the first mag and look down in it. 1 hole, your golden, 2 save it for scrap value but do not mix it in with the other brass.

    The general consensus is to inspect every time and you'll start to see cracks or other defects before they become an issue.

    I've known people to claim that due to all the primers being removed and installed and the pocket cleaned a case is no good anymore when the primer no longer snugly fits into the pocket or even falls out.
