I found through Trial and error that the cheapest shipping rate (price per box) was when I bought 4x boxes of 500 rounds.

The shipping rates were as follows:

2 boxes: 20.43 = 10.22 each
3 boxes: 27.31 = 9.10 each
4 boxes: 32.67 = 8.17 each
5 boxes: 45.17 = 9.034 each

Unfired 308 Lake City Primed Brass



Tar sealed mouth, primed 308 Lake City Brass . Primer is crimped and lacquer sealed. Brass has the NATO cross headstamp. Most of the brass is LC12 or LC11 but there may be a different year dates on it. No guarantees.

This is exceptional brass. All primers are military 34 and all function. The brass has never been fired so it has the correct head space and case length, BUT YOU NEED TO CHECK THAT JUST AS YOU CHECK ALL BRASS, NEW AND FIRED THAT YOU RELOAD.

Note, the tar sealed mouth. When NATO 7.62 is pulled, it leaves the waterproof tar seal in the mouth. If you resize this brass and EXPAND the neck, the tar will gum up your expander ball. You have options, you can fight the gum, only neck size outside OR use a Q-tip with xylene and the tar will melt like butter. There appears to be enough tar left to waterproof and reseal your bullet and it doesn't seem to affect accuracy. But no guarantees on that. This is pulled brass after all.

Have you ever dealt with tar sealed cases? I wonder how hard it would be to clean them up.

Probably not a good Idea with a live primer.

I'm just going off of what the description says about cleaning up the tar... so you just load them as is then?

this is what Ive done on the past when pulling my own tar sealed bullets and likely what I will do again...

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/imag...AA300_.jpg

I use a case prep center and affix a copper (DIY i machined myself) swab/patch holder spindle to my prep station. I use 2 swab drenched in mineral spirits and turn the machine on... I then just run the neck of the brass over the mineral spirit doused swabs and it comes right out. i can usually get all the tar out of 4-5 peices of brass before changing out to new swabs. I imagine a patch holder and a drill would suffice OK as well.
