223 Winchester brass any good?

I have a chance to get my hands on 1000pcs of once fired 223 Winchester brass. Anybody have any issues with Winchester brass?

Yup, you'll probably find Winchester brass is the most common brass used by High Power Shooters.

I think for modest price brass, its the best.

I have loaded and shot some winchester brass. It works just as good as everything else does. I have some new winchester brass I havent loaded up yet. I might save them for some nice match loads.

It's as good as any commercial brass out there.

I havent loaded 223 yet but I like Winchester brass for everything else. I dont like how Remington or Federal brass reloads, never tried Norma or Starline though but will one of these days.
"...and that's the bottom line, because Big Yac said so."
