Lacquer on case

Post by klw » 21 Sep 2016, 14:26

When used in a PS90 how long with the lacquer hold up?
Also if you get a jam, how hard is it to clear?
Finally, did anyone ever figure out how to relacquer the cases?

Failing that is there a list anywhere of what doesn't work? What people have tried that failed?

Properly cared for lacquer should outlast the shoulder.

Never jammed a PS90, can't help there.

Every lacquer experiment I know of has failed. No lacquer is also a fail. Bad lacquer is a fail. I've got some cases with a scrape in the lacquer though, and they run fine.

Interesting. About how many reloads per case on average?

5 to 8 if you load light loads.

Make sure to use Carb Clean on your chamber (Wally World house brand works great) as de greasers and gun solvents DO NOT remove lacquer build up since they aren't designed to.

In GONRA's experience, its a Nice Idea to leave the Microscopic layer of Case Resizing Lube
on the Resized Case / Finished (ready to shoot) Ammo to deal with these issues.

ALSO - just didit for Brand New EA brass in my 5.7x28 mm FN FsN Pistol.
Setup "STP Oil Treatment" (yer Favorite Case Lube will be Just FIne too!) Sloppy Fingers.

Smeared every "factory fresh case" hand load.
Functioned PERFECTLY in my FsN with my Prize Winning Handloads.

Over the decades, THIS has been a"good idea" for
5.56x45 mm (.223) FAMAS rifle reloads,
7.62x51 mm NATO Golden State Arms G3 reloads, and
our 5.7x28 mm FN FsN pistol reloads.
(Never reloaded much for other HK "Roller Cam" Retarded Blowback fifles - factorY ammo was too cheep.)

>>> For .276 Pedersen rifles, ABSOLUTEY NECESSARY!!!! (No fluted chamber.) DON"T BLOW YER HEAD OFF! <<<
(Warm yer wallet (red hot) and contact GONRA if you need .276 Pedersen En Bloc clips.
Am not sellin' 'em - will ell ya'll who to email. )
