The Difference Between Brand New Brass and Remanufactured Brass: A Deep Dive into Quality at Mountain West Lethal Precision
Published on  Updated on  
When it comes to ammunition, the choice between brand new brass and remanufactured brass can significantly impact your shooting experience. At Mountain West Lethal Precision (MWLP), we take pride in offering both options, each crafted to the highest standards of quality and reliability. Understanding the difference between these two types of brass, and the meticulous processes we employ, can help you make an informed decision that best suits your needs.

Brand New Brass

Brand new brass ammunition is manufactured from raw materials, resulting in casings that have never been fired before. These new casings offer several advantages:

• Consistency: New brass casings are uniform in dimension and structure, ensuring consistent performance.
• Longevity: New brass can typically withstand multiple reloadings before showing signs of wear, providing a longer service life for those who reload their own ammunition.
• Cleanliness: Since the brass has never been fired, it is free from carbon deposits, dirt, and other residues that can affect performance.

Remanufactured Brass

Remanufactured brass, on the other hand, is previously fired brass that has been meticulously cleaned, inspected, and reloaded. At MWLP, our remanufacturing process is designed to ensure that remanufactured brass performs as reliably as new brass.

Our Remanufacturing Process at MWLP

1. Proprietary Brass Sourcing: We begin by sourcing brass from reputable local ranges, ensuring a steady supply of high-quality casings.
2. Caliber Sorting: The brass is then sorted by caliber to maintain uniformity throughout the remanufacturing process.
3. Thorough Cleaning: Using detergent and other cleaning agents, we thoroughly clean the brass to remove any residues. This is followed by a tumbling process in our specially formulated corn cob media to restore the brass to its original shine and luster.
4. AI-Powered Sorting: Our artificial intelligence head stamp reader can sort up to 8,000 rounds per hour, ensuring that any damaged or substandard casings are removed from the batch. This step guarantees exceptional quality and consistency.
5. Segregation and Reloading: The sorted brass is then segregated and reloaded with brand new primers, powder, and high-quality projectiles. This ensures that each round meets our stringent performance standards.
6. Chamber Checking System: Each finished bullet is put through a chamber checking system to verify functionality in your firearm. This step also allows for another round of inspection for any imperfections.
7. Test Firing and Quality Verification: Samples from each batch are test-fired to verify that velocities are within spec and that the ammunition cycles perfectly through firearms. These results are recorded and included in our batch information.
8. Final Packaging: The final step involves loading each box with the appropriate quantity of ammunition, verified by machine counting and weight. Only after this rigorous process is a bullet from MWLP ready to be delivered to you.
