    Anyone reload these with the sealed primers? Any complaints? Thanks

    I've stopped using federal brass in the .223.

    My experience with it is that it is always much shorter than other brands and shorter, even, than the Trim-to length recommended by all manuals. Additionally, the primer pockets are soft.

    There are some good prices right now on the various Federal offerings. I plan to leave 'em on the ground.

    No experience with current AE, but I load the old stuff up a few times without serious drama.
