Thanks guys, I appreciate it. I'm new to loading and the idea of starting out with some brand new brass is appealing. I'll eventually be loading for both my bolt gun and an LR308. Was hoping the Lake City match brass would be durable for more than 3 or 4 reloads though. I also have 500 once fired Fed GMM casings as well. I know they are once only fired as I am LE and they came from our SWAT guys training. All fired once from Rem 700s. The department does not use reloads for training so I managed to get a case of brass in boxes. So which would be best for long term working up loads,, the LC or the Fed GMM Commercial stuff?
