    The crimp is removed to reload, but they still have a tight primer pocket AFTER crimp removal. That's what I meant.... I kinda wrote it as though the crimp remains.

    To be clear: Did these come out of your gun? Or did you just pick up random brass?

    If the latter, then God only knows how many times it was fired, or in what...

    If the primer pocket is still tight, perhaps youíve not fully removed the crimp. Iíve seen people do that. Additionally, a uniformer can make them much smoother.

    No idea.

    But it's like Hornady .45 ACP brass. Every one I run across has a too- tight primer pocket. And only Hornady.

    So I suspect the same story with Wolf .223.

    I reload my ammo but even with a 650 I get sick of it at times & will buy a case or 2 of commercial ammo to supplement. So there are several cases worth of Wolf Gold brass in my mix that was all 1x fired by me. There is nothing wrong with their brass.

    I run all my military brass thru a Dillon 600 SS so maybe that's the difference, but it does nothing to uniform pockets - just swages crimp. I use CCI #41, Wolf SRM, & Fiocchi SRM primers - none of those seem to feel any different in the pocket vs LC or WCC brass.

    I never saw any of the issues from this thread with it - as good as any other 55gr FMJ factory ammo to me. Only ran thru 6 cases of it so maybe just got lucky, but have a very favorable opinion of it. Not even qualifying "for under $300 case it's good ammo for the $".....my experience was it's good ammo period. Had no ammo related failures that I remember and didn't notice any accuracy degradation vs other commercial ammo...not that i shoot FMJ for groups or precision @ longer ranges.....
