    Almost wish I hadn't found this

    I was shooting 38 Super out of my Citadel today. Went to pick up my brass and found one that was split. Armscor factory round.. Anyone else experience one of these?

    I occasionally see the splits. They are random enough that I do not associate them with any particular brand of brass or particular caliber. Most of my stuff is reloaded so I tend to blame it on the age of the brass, but have seen it on new brass also. Nothing to get worried about unless it shows up in larger quantities.

    Thanks for the reply. I am 60 years old and shot a lot never had this happen on new or reloaded brass. Guess I just got to see an anomaly before my old eyes gave out...

    It had accuracy problems until Nonte altered the chamber cut to headspace on the case mouth.

    It initially used the semi-rim on the barrel hood.

    Cartridges sometimes ended up angled in the chamber.

    I see those on every outing with .38 Spl and .357 Mag.
    I haven't seen any from my .38 supers, but it shouldn't be unusual.
