I have found that my 100 count bags of Remington brass usually turn into 99 or 98 packs because there are usually one or two that are only good for recycling. Whenever I buy new anymore, I just buy Starline. It's cheaper and has fewer rejects so far. Since I'm not terribly hard on it, I doubt lifespan will be an issue.
“At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child – miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.” — P.J. O’Rourke
