Bought 500 rds today. I thought this was loaded in commercial brass? What I got is loaded in LC with sealed and crimped primers?

If you did, you got a bargain.
At least you can swage the primer pocket and reload LC.
The standard Federal brass is shit and only good for one shot.
DO NOT try to reload it.

Got pics? Lot number? That "F"C looks a bit like an "L"C.

All of my older (1999) American Eagle has the commercial brass.
It expands unbelievably upon firing and appears to be very soft.
Even full-sizing doesn't make it useable.

Federal/American Eagle/Lake City are all the same company now. I imagine they share brass when needed. My 3K of AE going with me to the Carbine Operators course at Blackwater are this way too.
