Default Any difference between......

.45 ACP Nat'l Match brass and any other brass.???

I found 268 RA '68-'69 empties, in a really nice seegar box. Super clean, nothing in the primer pockets, yet seems I can see some cases w/just barely noticeable swelling.....????????

If of no interest, they go into the Tommy gun stuff.

With match stuff, you're supposed to get consistency of rounds in a specific lot number. No other real advantage. "Match" doesn't carry any other magic and if you're not reloading a whole mess of rounds within a specific LN, there really isn't any advantage beyond peace of mind. My opinion, of course, and I'll note that I never made (or attempted to make) the Olympic high power or 45 teams.

Match brass IIRC does not have a crimped primer.
