The Rocky Mountain Cartridge Company may either be sold or cease to operate at the end of the year.

If you use their brass or have been thinking about it, order now. There is an eight week backlog ( at least on 16ga as they have to order bar stock to fill the order I placed today )

I have enjoyed their full length heavy brass shells and use them all the time.

Once you use their brass you will regret not finding it sooner. While there is not a large volume of tested data, there is enough to shoot.

I have some shells with over a hundred loads through them and none have worn out.

They are my and others preferred hull and I have everything possible to compare them to.

I know they are expensive, but they pay it off over time and the pleasure of shooting them

Cowboy action shooters in 12 gauge reported 3000 loads out an RMC hull. Gil

I have a lifetime supply of RMC brass hulls and encourage anyone wanting a hull suitable for thousands of loads to place an order with RMC.

JSchultz -- Do you clean those brass hulls between loadings, or periodically? Thanks.

Maximum Smoke,
I periodicaly clean the outside of each RMC hull by putting them in my tumbler and give them a good polishing. No tumbler? Use 4X steel wool to shine the hulls.

I have never cleaned the insides of the hulls and I'm thinking that because I use card and fiber wads, the need to clean them is unnecessary, but then I've only reloaded them a few hundred times. Very Happy

I reload 3/4 oz, 7/8 oz, 1 oz. and 1 1/8 oz. loads in RMC hulls. My reloads in these all brass hulls have given me the best patterns that I have ever had from my 16 Ga. #2 AyA.

I have reloaded w/o cleaning but not normally

Typically I wash them in an ultrasonic cleaner then rinse. If I have a heavy glue/sodium silicate build up I use a brass chamber brush to clean them out, then back into the cleaner then a rinse and dry before reloading.

Oops, I forgot to mention that I clean the hull mouths before reloading. I chuck up a 16 Ga. wire brush in my drill press and run the brush in and out a few Tims to remove the glue used to seal the OSC. Embarassed

Does the "no cleaning" regimen mean black or smokeless? If we shoot black powder in the RMC cases, what is the procedure for cleaning?

WELL
for me, when I use the black powder in brass hulls for duck or goose hunting,
I keep a bucket of soapy water next to my duck bucket.
When fired, the hulls get dropped into the bucket. Later, deprimed, cleaned with a bottle brush, rinsed and dried, then sized, then reloaded.

I have no experience with black powder reloading and cannot answer.

I note the no cleaning between loads was an exception case in my hotel room while on a hunting trip and not my common course of action.
