drail, that brass has not yet been tumbled, you see it as it was picked up off the ground. I don't know about a loose chamber as the Range Officer is supposed to have a match grade barrel along with forged frame and slide. SA describes it as more or less a competition gun without all the bells and whistles that drive the price up.
I will probably be picking up a wider selection of ammo tomorrow and hitting the range this weekend. I will post the results when I have them.
