I have access to Speer brass and find it good quality. For precision match shooting I still use Winchester but for short range practice, short range shooting (to 300 yards it works quite well).
Mine comes from the Speer 64 grn Gold Dot for LE. The primer pockets are tight, but not crimped like the LC Military stuff. I don't jump though hoops on swedging pockets on Speer brass, I load it as if it wasn't crimped.
As to price, if its once fired, then yes I's say its a good buy. You can get bulk surplus military brass cheaper, but for me, I don't think the extra work involve to get it re loadable is worth it.
