These .44-40 Winchester, 'Winchester' Brand, Once Fired, Used Brass cases are for reloading pistol ammunition. They are always delivered clean and may have been polished by kensbrass.com for better quality assessment.
*Gilding metal used varies from brand to brand. The harder the gilding metal, the more energy is taken to fire form the brass to fit the chamber. Similar brand brass provides a more consistent shot placement in rifles and allows for consistent durability for pistol loads. Using differing brands for rifle loads has a minimal output effect on the muzzle energy but at distance the slightest output difference can be a big difference.
They may have minor dings, dents or slight imperfections and flaws
which can be easily removed upon resizing or will be 'shot out' upon the
first firing. These cases are NOT YET loaded ammunition. These cases are a used product and so are sold 'as-is'.
