Should I be worried about faulty brass?

I've seen several threads where case-head separation caused a few kabooms.

I was able to purchase 12 boxes of 77gr. Federal Gold Medal Sierra Matchking at $12.49 a box due to a liquidation sale at a local hardware store.

what should I look for?

Look for small, tight groups.

To be followed shortly thereafter by a warm, fuzzy felling.

thanks for the peace of mind

didn't plan on reloading so I should be in good shape.


at the time, I was freaking out over the price (david regularly has them priced at nearly $19 a box)



here's another dilemma...

if I sight in one of my ARs (irons) using this stuff...odds are I'm not going buy it again at it's normal price of nearly a buck a round.

guess I better start saving pennies?

Zeroing to a new load with irons is a 30 min. job if you are really picky. More than likely, the POI will be less than 1.5-2.0 MOA (probably way less) by switching mfrs. using the same bullet. This assuming that you continue to use match or top quality ammo. You will be fine.
