Cci?

Bought a bunch of CCI "Brass" loaded ammo today. Wondering how this brass compares to my favorite Winchester/Federal/Remington as far as reloading quality.

Any of ya'll have experience with this brass?

I've never reloaded on it, but others have claimed it is only good for about three loads. I shoot low pressure .45 ACP primarily, so I don't see any brass failures very often.

I'd shoot it, no problem.

CCI brass (and nickel cases)

I have used CCI /Speer brass in .38 Spl, and .357 Magnum, and have noticed no significant difference from R-P, WW, or Federal. Your experience may be different, as many variables come into play.

I loaded up and fired a coupla hundred rounds today, based on the CCI cases.....every single one went "boom", none split, etc.

Thanks for the responses!
