I recently came across a couple of thousand once fired 9mm brass. However when I deprimed them and tried to reprime them I ran into a problem. The primer pocket is just too small to take the primer. They do not have crimps per say, like 5.56 that I have seen but do seem to have extra material on the outside edge. I bought a hand tool that was supposed to ream out the pocket but I figure that it will take me forever to complete the job.
Is there another way to do this? Oh and what is it called are they crimped? or what??

thanks in advance as always!

I pay $12/thousand for once fire commercial Winchester Brass.

Just throw the shit away, it's not worth .012 apiece to deal with reaming primer pockets.

Keep the brass. You may think it is worthless now, but when the time comes it will be very valuable as barter.

Personally for me I would $hit can the lousy brass. Why use up valuable storage space, when you can get some that works. 9mm Para is so plentiful it is not worth the effort to ream the flash holes. I would take them all down to the local recycle yard, and sell them.

I would save it, I don't know about Canada but around here at the local gun shows you can trade your brass in for some money off on reloads.

Thats what I was afraid of....pretty much useless as it is. Oh well I guess I had better try and find some commercial stuff up here.
