Head Ripping Issue Caused by a Fluted Chamber
Recently a shooter sent us their fired Peterson Cartridge .260 Remington casings to make us aware of an issue that they were having with the brass. The casings had chunks missing out of the heads. This had us concerned that the case-heads were splitting, cracking, or had some other unknown issue. Derek Peterson, the president here at Peterson Cartridge, investigated the issue and ultimately found that the cause was due to the casings being shot out of a “fluted chamber”. We thought this information would be valuable for fellow shooters and wanted to share what we learned.
