View Full Version : brass pressures

12-22-2007, 05:52 PM
so i was in gun room looking at a couple of my 92's and a thought occured to me.
do they really make brass to only certain pressures i.e. why make softer or harder/ thicker brass
i mean 44 mag vs 44 special, 45 colt etc my model 92 in 44 mag i am sure didnt go through a special heat treat process to hold more pressure than my 92 in
25_20 or the one in 45 colt did it.
i understand about thicker web areas and sidewalls etc .

just askin
