whats your thoughts on using the LC 223 brass
found at the range.one day I picked up 250
pieces of it..is it true you have to use a
lighter loader than with other brass? I know
I have to swage the primer pockets.thanks for
any other advice..rizzo

LC or Lake City brass is good brass.  It is military brass so, it is thicker with slightly less capacity.  So yes, you will need to start low and work up your loads.

Picking up brass at the range can be problematic. You never know if the brass has been reloaded or not. It could be that the brass has been reloaded multiple times and the shooter has left it because signs of problems are occurring. The added time to inspect and prep the brass has lead me away from picking up brass unless I know the shooter that left it. Everything shiny is not gold. Wink

What 3_tens said.
Plus Federal now runs the Lake City facility, Federal makes the American Eagle line which has a thinner case head than most other brands. Just sayingBig Smile

Also, Lake City brass has a crimp around the primer pocket that needs to be cut or swagged out.
