Has anyone had recent experience with Federal .32 H&R brass, or for that matter, the .327 brass?
All .327 Federal brass should be considered "Federal", no matter what it's stamped. It's all made on the same machines, by ATK. Some of it comes out stamped "Speer". Some of it comes out stamped "FC". It just depends on what they're running, at the time. Some of those go on to be nickel plated.
I haven't had issues with the brass I've got (Speer nickel, FC nickel, FC brass).
