Also was a list of good brass and bad brass.
Could we create a sticky that would list calibers and everyone could chime in about headstamps considered good or bad. We could just have people post their experiences and update a top level message. Obviously there could be disagreements where one person says this headstamp is decent while another says it is trash, in which case we could go with 3 categories for headstamp: Good to go, Mixed Review, Junk Brass.
Maybe a 1-5 rating on inspection necessity. 1=super strong brass, just a basic inspection down to 5=inspect it extremely well or its going to KB!.
What do you guys think?
I love to dig up all the free brass at the range, it sure would be nice to have a list of what to throw in the scrap bin right off the bat...
Good to go brass:
Starline (Two Stars with an arc between them)
Winchester (WIN, WCC?)
Company? PMC? (ELD)
Shootable, but not as good:
Precision Metalic Something? (PMC)
What's wrong with Speer?
