    Yesterday evening at the range with the 4-H kids practicing a parent called my attention to some new Winchester 410 HS shells that had split brass. He told me the he has had at least 1 per box and as high as 3 per box that were split.

    Has anyone seen this before? Looks like quailty control and good brass has gone out the window. Kinda makes you lose confidence in shells now days.

    Thanks

    Used to get them in the good old days too. I had some WW2 tracers made by Winchester, out of 25 about 15 were split.

    Had some split field shells too once in a while, only a couple a year.

    IF you send them to Winchester they might send you a box or 2. Include the lot number.

    Thanks for the post guys ! I think I will tell the dad to send the splits back to Winchester and see what they do.

    Does Remington make 410 STS ?

    Dr Longshot... the brass that was split was new unfired shells. They were split right out of the box.

    Yes I think 20 gauge would be better.
