I have had 2 case head separations in the M1A. Both times the case head was flung backwards and tattooed me right in the center of my forehead. Ouch! The rest of the case left in the chamber, came out by simply shaking the rifle. One was with a Winchester case and one was a standard LC case. Both were on their 6th load. I never had any problem with loose primer pockets. I did get some of the LC brass from a man who shot on the Marine Rifle Team at Cherry Point, with Hathcock and Gonzales, but have never seen any with the hash marks you speak of. I have never gone to the extent of measuring and adjusting the sizing die, as Bart and Hummer have done. I did try the X-Die and did not care for it.
