Decrimp WCC Match? Empty Decrimp WCC Match?

Post by jmdavis 6/18/2018, 12:13 pm

I am starting to use my Star more for my reloading. In the past with the Dilln I had to decrimp TZZ cases, but I could simply reload the WCC Match. Should I run them through the decrimper before reloading  using the Star?

Thanks,

Mike

WCC Match were usually uncrimped primers. WCC ball had crimped primers but some weren’t crimped hard so that varies.

Thanks,

Not a bad idea.  FC, WCC and TZZ/IMI military brass often but not always, have crimped primers.
IMO, if you have quite a few cases, it may be easier to de-crimp than sort.

I was told by an old Star distributor, that the line up is such, that you do not have to decrimp when using the Star.  In most respects, he was pretty much correct, as long as you do not "speed" through the process when pulling the handle down and if you have the shell plate set, so that is just turns without too much effort, so the primer punch lines up with the case correctly.  I have reloaded WCC Ball cases without decrimping, but it can go south if you use CCI primers, since they seem to be slightly oversize and they tend to shed a small sliver of metal, which can lock up the primer arm.  I generally use Winchester primers and have never had a problem with them, unlike the CCI's.

Having said all that, it speeds up the process if you de-crimp and it just makes things more consistent, so you don't have to sort cases or worry about primers shedding small slivers that can lock things up.

It is nice when you can find WCC Match cases since they are not crimped.

All the cases are pre-sorted by year. Some are lacquered. I will deprime a few of each year and check for crimp.

Greetings,

I do not see any crimp in the photo of the WCC74 MATCH. I have shot many thousand of that headstamp as is was graciously gifted to us Civilians by the National Guard.

They do have a primer sealing lacquer and sealant between the bullet and case wall.

Cheers,

Dave

We used to issue WCC/WCC Match, FC/FC Match, and TZZ/IMI at the Fleet Matches.  Mostly TZZ/IMI now.  I'll check when I get back (on the road).
I hope, and very possible, that I may be confusing WCC and WCC Match, but it will be easy to check.  The problem I forsee is production years.   What may hold true in one year/era may not be true years/decades later.  Shouldn't be to hard to figure out once you deprime the cases.

Dave, quick question for me, is the National Guard issuing WCC Match to Civilians/retirees? 
I thought our matches were the last to support Active, Retired, and Civilians.

I'm with Dave.. none of my 74 WCC match has any crimp.. same for most older WCC match at least the 78, 80, 82, 84, and 87 I have..

great brass BTW




All the plain WCC non match I've seen was crimped

Agreed.  If it’s all the 74-87 I’m probaby mistaken.
I’ll check when I get back but I swage them all since it’s all mixed.

I just use a quick twist of a case prep deburring tool . This breaks the edge without removing much metal. Easy peasy

Only WCC brown box hardball has crimped primers.  The WCC Match does not.  I use an RCBS primer pocket swaging die that works like a champ and doesn't wear out my fingers like the other methods can.  
WCC is excellent brass that will last a very long time. I've gotten as many as 20+ reloads on a case with typical bullseye loads.
