Anyone have any input on the SIG brass for 300 Blackout? Not having much luck with it, compared to other brands of reloading brass.

Working fine for me so far, though a friend had a box of Sig factory ammo recently that pushed several primers out. I didn't police up any of that brass.

What problems are you having?

it comes out uneven when sized. Plus the RCBS AR die does not apply enough neck tension, as to why I switched to L.E. Wilson neck sizer die.

What do you mean by "it comes out uneven?"

that sounds more like a die problem than a brass problem if you ask me


can you give us some pics of a warped neck one?
