Lucky me, I guess.
Like you, have used many thousands of Win, Rem, CCI and Federal interchangeably without difficulty in my Glocks and Colts. Some believe that Federals have the softest cups.

IME, typical Winchester performance is 100%-correct functioning.

From my time here on GT, that is far from the stories I've read.

Some say store shelves full of NOTHING but Winchester is the same as having no primers at all.

I've not used them, but there has been MULTIPLE reloaders who've relayed negative stories. I can't recall the first negative about Federal, except perhaps
1. They're more expensive (I can live with that)
2. Their packaging sucks (huge boxes, I can live with).

But reloading or shooting? Money.

WTF?! How a cheap can an old, the old fart get?!
