    I'm not sure this happens in all areas, but our scrappers have two different levels for Brass. For shell Brass. It's Red Brass, because of the Zinc. Red Brass normally runs cheaper than regular pure Brass.

    Ajax111 replied to a thread Cannelure usage? in Swaging
    The last batch I did were tumbled first and then I put on the cannelure. Of course, you can feel a difference in the roughness. But honestly, I can still feel plenty of roughness in the batch that the cannelure was put on before they went into the...

    I'm trying to find any information on a Herter's swaging die marked 451-C. This is a die to be used in a regular reloading press. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
