I have 100 remington .270 cases. 50 have been reloaded 6 times and the remainder (few missing now) have done 5. Last night I tumbled all the empties and resized them. Of the cases that had been reloaded 6 times I had to reject 3 for case head seperation. I just checked them all again and the rest look fine. For peace of mind i will chuck out the cases that have done 6 reloads. Is it time to get rid of the lot and start again? in the cupboard I have 16 loaded rounds to see me till after the new year then was toying with the idea of working up a new load with a different bullet/powder (currently using N160 but wanted to try a 140gn bullet over Re22).
So should I throw the lot?
Is Federal premium brass any good/would you buy this rather than RP?
Anyone recommend a 140gn bullet for everything from munties to Reds?
