Failed analogy. I don't smell my tires so yes in that case, it doesn't matter (as much). The ammo, I handle and can smell so, it does matter a lot.

I can live with the smell and can use it as-is, just want to make the experience more pleasurable if possible.

Since it is Berdan primed, How does one reload it? I have some German 7.62x51 that has some tarnish on a few cases. Wipe it off w/ a flannel clothe, that is all. Sell the brass and buy Boxer primed brass.
