So far so good. I make sure to lubricate the rounds with a case lube prior to firing and as of now I don't see much damage or stretching of the fired case. I am hoping to get quite a few reloads through the brass as it is expensive.very nice.
how rough is it on new production brass?
Pretty sure you have to be independently wealthy to have a FA MG like that to begin with!!Just a note here for those who did not know. 7.7 Jap,rimless, can be easily made from 30/06 cases. There is no need to pay serious bucks for a commercial round or 7.7 Jap brass. I've loaded several dozen 7.7 Jap for collectors...just need .311 bullets and a 7.7 die set. These are the same dia. as .303 Brit and 7.62x54R projectiles. Of course,there are 3-different types of 7.7 Jap...rimmed,semi-rimmed and rimless rds. Not sure which type the 92 MG uses...but believe it's the rimless...just like the issue rifle. If you are going to shoot these rare type of guns...you almost have to reload...or be independently wealthy...!!
