Your set! Good.
BTW, I picked up 100 pieces of Lap brass from Connecticut Tactical Supply last spring for $175. Someone posted the sale here and it was time to buy in. At that price for high quality out of the box, tough brass, it's hard to beat.
Not sure they have any more, but at the time he had 4K cases he was trying to get rid of.
Edit: And, someone with a FFL can get Lap brass pretty cheap through Black Hills Shooters Supply for you on a regular basis. I'm hoping to get 2x as much life out of these cases as my Rem brass, which at the prices above, would end up actually being cheaper or equalling that cost of Rem brass, with better quality brass that tougher and doesn't require a bunch of prep.
