I was unable to find TTI Brass, so I ordered Jamison from Grafs. Kirby said its a bit tougher to form. Kirby sent me a couple example formed 338AM brass, and comparing the TTI to the Jamison, the Jamison has a bit thicker rim (his where fired, mine are new). The TTI is also a bit lighter (366gr/365gr, my 100 Jamison averaged 381gr. The lightest Jamison was 365 (way out of the norm). As far as I know, the brass Kirby sent were also 'out of the norm', just giving you the info that I have. The Jamison brass I purchased, had 4 very light and one very heavy. The other 95 had an extreme spread of 10 grains, with 2 clusters within 3 grains that made up the majority of the Brass.
The Jamison brass seems to be quality stuff. I couldn't find TTI brass, if I could have, I would have bought it instead. I just felt funny not having the brass on the shelf for the rifle I had on order.
Here is a link to the Brass I purchased.
