Midway brass orders

Any body elses bulk brass from Midway been short of brass.I've ordered around 1200 cases from them this year. A 500 box of .204 was short 6 a 100 box of .220 was short 1 and a box of .32 I ordered last year was short 1.then with the case or two with the bad necks I'am even shorter.Bulk brass used to come with 1 or 2 extras.I know its not much but when I pay for 100 or 500 I like to get what I paid for

True bulk will be counted by weighing. That means the exact count will vary with case weight lot variation. When the cases are running a little light, you'll get more and vice versa.

Yes ive noticed this too lately. This is why now i just save money and buy used brass. with used brass im paying a fraction of the cost. Ive yet to be shorted on case count. And I average about 10 bad cases out of 500 but I usually get a few extras in the count. If you take your time with the case prep you can still make some high quality ammo.
