Top Brass?

This may or may not have been discussed before, couldn't find very much about this company in the archives.

I was looking at Top Brass sight, and it appears that they have excellent prices on .45acp brass. According to the site, you can get # 1000 primed with Fed. 150 cheaper than you can buy unprimed Winchester brass, which is what I currently use. They also make a pretty bold statement, stating they are the "BEST" and have the tightest tolerances in the industry.

Has anybody used their brass and if so, what's your opinion about the quality, accuracy, uniformity, durability, ect....?

I've used some in 45 colt and 44 mag. Very good stuff as far as I can tell.

As for durability, the jury's still out, as I don't have any with more than three loads ran through them yet.

Thanks for the feedback. From what little info that I've heard, everything seems to be positive.

Just ordered 1K of .45 acp (primed). Thanks for the tip. Hope they are OK. That is a REALLY good price. I pay just about that for Win brass.

I also just ordered 1K of .45acp (primed). I didn't go with their brand though, because I found an even better deal on their site. Under "April Specials", they have 500 rounds of brand new Winchester stamped brass with Winchester primers for $60. I just couldn't pass that up. I'll try out their stuff next time around.

I'm glad you all were able to grab some. Have fun loading them and making them go bang

I've used several thousand of their 100% processed .223 brass. All I've ever gotten from them as been LC.

I just exchanged emails with them. They are currently BO on .45 but are running that line now. They expect to have it ready to prime in about three weeks.
