I have a hard time with that theory since it didn't happen with the same batch until recently.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Dont know much about this , but i think i remember someone from my military days (25 years of service , many of them as a tank commander and some years as instructor in explosives ) talked about gunpowder or explosives could get old and burn to fast ??

The winner is the man with most tools !

There is some truth to that but it wouldn't explain why some of them split when I pulled the bullets.

Look up the Mfg website, contact with an email, send a sample for their lab to study, receive their results....problem solved.

More trouble than it's worth. They would just conclude something out of their control happened to it and like I said IT DID NOT ALL DO IT, JUST WHAT I HAVE FIRED RECENTLY GETTING DOWN TO THE LAST OF IT. I have a 3 lb coffee can full of it that did not split.

I think I finally figured out why the brass was splitting. I discovered my sizing die was making a small scratch in the brass vertically, must have always and I didn't notice it, and the brass always split vertically. Apparently the scratch weakened it. Returned the die to Hornady and they sent me a new one, no more scratches.
roscoepc and flylow like this.
