Important information!SUNDOG50 sentme a box of 9mm brass. As I was sorting I had the military brassready to size. I got the sizer die set for the WCC cases. I came upon a TZZ and stuck it in the press, after a proper examination for double flash hole. the case went in almost all the way,then the web hit the decap rod. Huh? The handle was only part of the way up. I took the case out of the press. I examined the case with a magnifying glass, along with a WCC. Huh, the bottom of the case on the TZZ iscloser then the bottom of the WCC. I toss the TZZ, and continue on sizing, and after another 48 WCC a TZZ. carefully I pulled down the handle. The same problem. I adjusted the die, and theTZZ went in just fine. adjusted the rod back down and had trouble again. Another examination with the magnifying glass. hummm. the web is closer on that one too. All the TZZ were the same way.This means that the TZZ web is thicker then the WCC.So beware of this the next time that you reload the TZZ 9mm's.Hummmm. I wonder if the TZZ 45acp's and the 5.56(223 Rem) are the same way? more expirimenting. Will post results next time I get a chance.DANIEL / BULL SHOP JUNIORNOTE-BS senior- Sometimes that boy amazes me!

TZZ brass is Israeli brass, simply put it's damn good brass. It's all I'd use if I could get it in all calibers. Don't throw it away. It is thicker, stronger and better made. I use TZZ brass for my 45acp loads. They make great .223 brass too.

I save my TZZ .45acp brass for those "hotter" loads. Holds up fine to 1150fps. 230gr. loads in a toy I'd better just describe as KEWL.

BSJ (dat's Bull Shop Junior - great handle btw!) do NOT throw away the TZZ brass, "it's good stuff, Maynard."  In case your don't know who Maynard is, ask your Mom and Dad.  In case they don't premember it's Maynard G. Crebbs, aka Gilligan, who played on Dobbie Gillis.  Anyway. segregate the TZZ, and use it by itself after chamfering the primer pocket. Check the mil brass carefully because it is often less internal volume.  Glad to see you 'gettin' after it' already, and I'm glad I was able to 'hep'.  sundog

I didn't remember the "its good stuff, Maynard." from Dobie Gillis. I wonder if the episodes are available on DVD?

"Good stuff Maynard!" usually comes from me right after a sip of some old Scotch, or maybe a hit on a Really Good cigar!  One of my favorite sayings!

  This thread reminded me of a bit of triva you might not realize.  Every Christmas my wife (She Who Must Be Obeyed) has to watch certain "Christmas Classics".  No, not a real classic like A Christmas Story (You'll shoot your eye out!)  but "t's A Wonderful Life" never could stand that movie and I only recently figured out why.  That crooked old banker, played by Lionel Barrymore I think, gets away with stealing the money!  I know, I know, the morale is supposed to be do good and don't worry about what the other guy is doing but I have an Old Testament view of crime and fitting punishment.

  Anyway, when George finally wigs out and is being driving around town in that taxi, did you see who the driver was?  DOBY GILLIS'S father!  That was the only part of that tear-jerker that brought a smile to my face, much less a tear to my eye!
