Need some 32-40 wcf brass the only thing I can find is quality cartridge brass. As I am not firmilar with this company is it any good. All of the 38-55 I size to 32-40 , does not chamber properly.
( to tight ). Sized brass works in marlin lever gun but not in my 2 Stevens 441/2's any advise would be appreciated.thanks

Doug

Can't help you with the Quality of the Brass one is just lucky to find any in stock these days no matter by who it is being made. If doesn't seem to work out for you it's easy enough to sell and to get what you paid for it back as well.

I just bought some 32-40 from Midway and it was Quality. I also bought some from Huntington's head stamped VH. Both look OK but the Huntington brass shows obvious annealing colors. The Quality doesn't. Both loaded fine and have no obvious defects. Thanks, ratseye

BobZ the only Issue I have had with the WW Brass in the past is a couple separations at the Cannelure groove. And of course it seems to happen in the middle of a match.

Nothing wrong with the brass, they just load different. capacity is less so i am getting different compression with them and different velocity and I would just like them all to be the same.

No Breech Seated BobZ and I use the same case but they have all now seen more than their fair share of what would be considered normal use.

Thanks blackpowder.  Just the same reasons I always preferred Remington I guess. 

JL, Guess I have been lucky.  The only issue I have had is the primer pocket gets too loose.

BobZ boy ain't that the true I have just about lost all of my original 18 year old batch by just having the primers pockets becoming to loose to be continued to be used. Some of the best  brass Jerry Hartwig came by and we split just to try has been the once fired John Wayne plated brass that we both decided to try.
