Is this a good brass for reloading ?

Yes, its fine. No better or worse than any other brass, in my opinion.

Am I the only one who has issues with stuck cases with WCC brass? I believe it was 83 headstamp that I picked up at range. I stuck several out of the 10 or so I had.

Debating on scraping them since I only have a few, after I stuck a couple I put the others aside.

I daresay I've resized and reloaded every single brand of .223/5.56 boxer primed brass there is. The only possible way to get a case stuck in the sizing die is to under lube it. That ain't the fault of the brass or equipment.....
WCC is plain ol' generic military brass.

You will get to learn how to remove the primer crimp.

Read the 4 part post in Tutorials "how to load 223". Covers primer crimp.

Have fun with that! I hate removing crimps! but hey, you only have to do it once

I've got thousands of an 07 and 08 lot that have no crimped pockets.

Far and away better than any Lake City lot of I've ever used.....without pocket reaming.

I'd recycle it. In all likelyhood, someone has already removed the crimp. Not worth it for the few that you have... 83 would tell me that this might be someone's purge of brass that's on its last leg.

Now if you had a hundred or so... you could try a few and see if the primer pockets seemed tight still.

Maybe the cases you picked up were shot in a rifle with an over sized chamber.

When I'm sizing range brass, any cases that don't size right/feel right get scrapped.

Thanks, I'm just going to throw them in the scrap bucket tonight when I get home, they've been sitting out on my bench in a tub for several months..been debating on what to do with them.

I might try new lube, been using Hornady Unique Lube/Wax...but had no issues with stuck cases of other headstamps.
