    I both sort and use mixed for pistol brass. If I'm going to sort, I separate them out and do not include ww, ww super, or super x in the winchester brass. I can't remember the exact history now (I looked it up once), but winchester bought out...

    lightman replied to a thread Auction in Our Town
    I agree, auctions are funny. I've never really found a bargain at one. Some items go for stupid prices. As far as shooting others reloads, there are a chosen few of my Friends whose reloads I will shoot. Or my Son's. No others, period.....

    That is mighty odd for that short of distance. Maybe weigh the brass if you kept it separate, maybe two of them have less or more capacity because of differnt lots and caused a difference in pressure? I'd guess it would be a change in the gun...

    If I were shooting at the National level I would sort them down to the exact head stamp or maybe even buy new brass from the same lot number. But I load most of my pistol ammo from mixed head stamps and it shoots pretty well. Probably better than I...

    I have let a mess of them go, especially when I was starting out and making more bad bullets than perfect bullets. Nothing wrong with using less than perfect bullets for plinking. I reject any inclusions, or rounded driving bands however.

    I also use a diamond stone when breaking the edge on a mould. I use a fine stone and just give it 3-4 licks. Just enough to see the line, .002-.003. You have to be careful not to do too much or you'll get the occasional fin. I like DMT stones...

    If I have trouble, I pour extra lead over the puddle and let it run down the side of the mould, pressure casting basically. This helps get real good fill out. This helps keep the sprue plate good and hot too. You didn't mention what alloy...

    Too tight a sprue plate will cause the bottom of the bullet to not fill out completely. You can loosen it or break the inside top of the mould blocks lightly to vent. Having too small a sprue puddle will cause this too.

    I'm kind of like JB, those don't look quite right. The ones that I have came from different sources and look like the ones that Scotner pictured. $2 is a fair price for Linotype but is kind of high for unknown scrap, even clean scrap.
