    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    I don't do .44 but Remington brass in .38 Spl is famous for being "thin" and allowing setback or bullet pull. It will work OK if you're seating HBWC or something else like a 158gr SWC that has a large bearing surface and you're using lead bullets which are a tad bigger. But I've had trouble with 125gr LRN staying put. I cull it and keep it separate. I have so much of it though I bought a Lee U (for Undersized) sizing die. This die sizes it down a tad more and makes it usable.

    I've also noticed that when I load 9mm for the Ruger Blackhawk using lead .358 diameter bullets many brands of brass are a bit thick and I have chambering problems. But Remington brass seems to be the most reliable as far as chambering goes, so I'm starting to think all there brass is "thin".

    Definition of clip

    1: any of various devices that grip, clasp, or hook
    2: a device to hold cartridges for charging the magazines of some rifles; also : a magazine from which ammunition is fed into the chamber of a firearm.

    Rem/UMC back during the Obama Admin was so soft it was virtually useless for .380 Auto. Many time the extractor on my 738 would pull right through the rims. Also at that time Win .380 Auto brass was to brittle and the rim would chip off as the extractor in my 738 pulled through it. Both led to FTE and I ordered Starline brass and tossed all my Rem and Win .380 Auto brass.

    BTW, I always do crimping as an extra step in my Lee Hand Press. Gives me a chance to look each round over and it need be adjust the crimp.

    Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.
