I was fortunate enough to score several hundred western 35 newton cases, all are fired brass, but i’ll take em… lol
however, 1 box of 20 has these interesting “tubes” inside the cases… Anyone have any idea why these are like this?
The tubes screw into the primer pocket, then the primer is seated normally. The tubes measure 1 1/2 inches long. I would assume it would be to start the powder burning top first, but what advantage would that be? I see this on large artillery shells, but not on such a relatively small case.
