I've had not more than 50 loads out of this .303 Pygmy (.303x1.5) 60 year old case.  What is the world coming to?

Cheers from New Zealand

 That's a lot Jeff if you didn't do anything to the case, but load it.  I would anneal the neck/shoulder occassinaly and it appears, at least to me, that case head separation is you're sizing the case shoulder back a bit too far.  What do you think Jeff?

It is shocking what is considered brass in this day and age. Its good that you vented your anger and registered your disgust on the internet about this travesty. Just kidding LOL.

It’s based on the 303. They are designed to do that 😉
