For reloading .45ACP, my brass order of preference is as follows, by headstamp; (best to worst)

S&B - consistent brass, tightest primer pockets
R*P - good quality
'Triangle' 9x - South African, good quality
Federal (and FC 9x) - some 'crimped' primers
PMC - okay quality
TZZ - Fiocchi
Hornandy - usually Starline, but don't see too many
CorBon - sometimes bulged (+P loading)
Anything else - range brass and practice reloads only.

If I can't identify a full 50 round box of brass, I don't reload for it for IDPA competition - a friend gets it as 'guaranteed to fire once' ammo. HTH,
