Wondering what the experts out there think....
Because of the fluted chamber, this rifle spits out some of the ugliest brass I've ever seen and I have been leery of reloading the stuff. Since I'm a cheapskate packrat and the rifle has a voracious appetite, it has really been piling up. So...
1) Is it safe to reload?
2) If so, about how many times?
Thanks, butch

Even thought you will find people who say that you can not reload them, I can tell you that you can. I have been doing it for 15+ years and it works fine. They may not look great but they reload and shoot just fine.
I have found case life to be good also. I have some WCC cases(from Win white boxed ammo) that have been reloaded at least 5 times. I found that the case head gets chewed up before the case fails and you tend to toss them.
