While reloading a few hundred rounds of .45 ACP today a finished round failed the Dillon Gage test. The brass stuck out about 1/4 inch above the top of the gage. The question is did it fail to seat because the last time it was fired by somebody, their gun had an oversize chamber? Does anyone know of a problem with A-MERC brass? This is the first time I have ever seen this in over 10K to 20K of .45 ACP reloading. Thanks for listening.

The ONLY reliability problems I've had with any of my current .45's have been associated with A-MERC cases which failed to chamber properly.

I've decided that A-MERC is God's way of punishing me for scrounging brass. :grin::

Jeez, is this going to be the first unanimously agreed upon thread in the history of gun forums? :wink:

I almost feel like praising A-MERC brass just to keep tradition alive.................but I can't do it - the brass sucks.

I am relatively new to reloading but with a Dillon 650 you can crank out some rounds! I started to notice anytime I had a failure to feed it was with AMERC brass. I now sort my loaded rounds before shooting seperating out this junk. I then load it up im mags and stand really close to the side berm at the range and let the brass fall in the weeds. Good place for it.

Odd coincidence. Yesterday (before reading this post) I was sorting my ammo for an IPSC by dropping rounds into the barrel. The only rounds that consistently wouldn't chamber was Amer-MERC brass. Experimented with it more today, and it just won't feed in my Kimber.

It's the same with their POS 9mm Brass too!
