    I've read in different books and magazines that you should separate brass of different manufacturers, since differences in wall thickness between makers can change the case pressures. I'll accept that and I have no problem doing it. My question is this: what about brass from the same mfgr. with different head stamps. For example, Some Remington brass is marked with P.M.C., R.P., F.C. or C.B.C. Should I separate these into different batches or is it safe to just put all Remington brass together.?

    I separate cases based on manufacturer only for my .30-06 hunting loads, and then I am not sure if I could see any real reason for doing so, as I do not reload any calibers at the extreme maximum powder loads. I do not worry about segregation at all on any "bulk" calibers where I regularly shoot and re-load a whole lot of rounds such as .223, 9mm or .45 ACP.

    Disregard my OP. Dumb a$$ mistake! I forgot there are more than one .223 calibers. So I kept seeing Rem. .223 PMC, CBC, etc. thinking, " man, Remington sure has a lot of subsidiary ammo companies" not realizing it's because the caliber is Rem.223!:rolleyes: (what a knucklehead).
