My shooting buddy and I went to the range this summer. He opens the box of 40 S&W Pistol ammo and two of the 50 rounds had the primers seated upside down! Do I think that makes Winchester bad and Remington good because I've NEVER had a FTF with the Rems? Not at all. S*** Happens! I'm partial to Winchester Model 70's but also have a Remington 700, 742 and 870's and shoot Remington Core Lokt's in rifle ammo and Winchester "White Box" pistol ammo. Moral of the story. Whatever floats your boat and makes YOU happy.
