I've found a good price on IMI brass in SGN. Has anyone used this stuff before? Is it of good quality?

Reading "Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal," by Ayn Rand, should be required of every politician and in every high school.

Absolute best 45ACP case, good in 40 and 9mm, only 41AE out there!

IMI brass is fine--as good as any I've used for over the years. Got a lot of mine from Accurate Arms & Ultramax remanufactured ammo.

I had a LOT of problems with some .38 Spl. IMI brass I got used some years ago.

It had apparently been loaded for a military contract, so the primer was ever so slightly crimped into place. What a pain in the butt.

Beware the man with the S&W .357 Mag.
Chances are he knows how to use it.

I'm not thrilled with the .308 brass from IMI. From now on I'll stick with Winchester or Remington.

I've used IMI .45 ACP Match brass for some time, and have no problems at all with it. It was cheaper than others, too. If memory serves, I only paid $85 per thousand through Widener's.

I use the IMI 45acp and 308win. Better than any winchester or remington Ive used. I'd say the IMI .308 Match stuff is close to the Federal Match. Not QUITE as good, but if you ain't shooting Benchrest, you ain't gonna notice. Long life, too.

I don't CARE about pretty....I just want dangerous.
