I just got a big batch of 1-Fired Winchester 45acp brass. Looks great except 10% of it has the BIG primer FLASH HOLE in them. Check out the picture attached....

Question: Has anyone reloaded and fired any of this stuff yet? What were the results?? It is a regular large Pistol Primer pocket. It just has a large flash hole in it. I think it is from the Win-Clean ammo for 45's.
Thanks

First ran into these large primer hole cases back in the spring, didn't know what to make of them at first. I read on another thread that W-W advised that they would be fine for reloading with standard components and data. I've reloaded boocoo brass like these with no problems whatsoever.

Same here, they are funny looking aren't they? When I first encountered them,I seperated them from the rest of my brass, loaded them with my standard range load, and compared them with the rest, and there was no difference in performance, so now they are in with the rest. Just load em & shoot em!

Large flash holes

The large flash hole are Winchester Win-Clean cases. There was something posted earlier about the Win-Clean lead-free primers needing the large holes. They reload fine.

I received this email in late 2001:

Thank you very much for taking the time to contact us here at Winchester
Ammunition. We are always glad to hear from our many friends and customers
who share in the shooting sport.

Winchesters 45 ACP WinClean ammunition does have a larger flash hole. If
this is the brass that you have then it is safe to reload.

Thank you again for contacting us here at Winchester Ammunition. If you
should require additional information, do not hesitate to contact us.
