w.c.c .223 brass

Does any body know if this is comercial or military brass? I have got 1000 ronds of this brass and wanted to know if I wasted my money on it or not I did not really want military brass I kind of assumed that wcc meant that it was winchester brass I am new to messimg with 223 brass always dealt with non military calibers

    Is there a date stamp on the case?

    Is there a crimp around the primer?

    Thare is nothing wrong with military brass if that eases your mind.

    Echo what bpost said.

    Size, remove crimp, prep primer pockets, debur flashole and load.

    I use Lake City, WCC, & Winchester....close to 2500 cases.

    Check for crimp. Crimp is easy to remove. Most WCC is crimped. I like Lake City brass better than most. It is very uniform, good quality and when I can find a deal on ebay, wow.
