    WTB once fired Federal 300 Win Mag brass

    As above, after some more. Yeah I know FC isn't the best, but its what I have and by the time I uniform the primer pockets, deburr flash hole, anneal, sonic clean, vld chamfer etc, they will be okay.

    Looking to pay 40-50 cents per case max.

    Hell if you have a decent amount of any once fired Norma brass, I'll take that too!

    I use Federal in my .300. They seem ok. I don't do all that stuff to my cases. Clean the primer pocket, de-bur, stuff the powder in (and a bullet ) and away I go. Shoots circa .75 moa all of the time.

    I've found the worst thing is mixing other cases with Federal and using the same load. Most other brands seem to pressure up more quickly. Maybe they are thicker? Remington and Federal don't seem to mix well.

    I do use FC brass for my .223 and .308 semis. Certainly no issues with accuracy, although batches of the .223 (FC 2013) have nearly all split at the necks, even with annealing. I blame the batch, as it just seems to be that year.
    I do find FC brass a bit stiffer than RP or Hornady generally.
