am strongly considering getting a springfield WWII mil-spec .45. i understand most have been reliable and trouble free for the most part but from a reloader's standpoint, i am concerned if they ding up brass alot and deform case mouths because that can be a pain. on the models you own\have fired, what has been their pattern?..thanks much

Mine dings them a bit...

But not as badly as my Colt (original ser 70. That one really smashes 'em). With the WWII springfield, most of my cases are slightly "out of round". But nothing that the resizer can't sort out.

Not bad at all, I did have a '1960something' Colt Gov't model that really beat up the brass. Comparing those two, my WWII is golden :) .

As I posted in a previous thread on the topic,



It's no big deal - any resizing will fix it.
