Any experience with Winchester brass?

    I've been waiting to get some Starline brass (backordered) and I'm running out of useable brass. I just saw a shop near me has a bunch of Winchester brass so I'm gonna go buy 500 I think. Is there any reason that everyone uses Starline besides price? Has anyone had any bad experiences with Win brass? I've always liked it in .45ACP.

    I have used Winchester and reused them many times as fired from my S&W 1006 and Glock 29...no complaints! Some have been convertered to 9x25Dillon and still going!

    I find New Winchester brass primer pockets on the tight side for the CCI primers but work great with the Winchester & Federal primers.

    The brass is fine. However for whatever reason, I do not get as long of life from Winchester because it shrinks to short much quicker than other makes. I probably get five reloads at the most before it "grows" too short. I really like their rifle brass though.
