Garbage in, garbage out.
Like everything else in this country. Federal is still good, at least the gummit end. Lapua brass is stupid expensive but candidly, I'm buying more and more because it's consistent and very re-reloadable.
I was surprised that Joyce Hornady put out such an inferior case, almost like there was no pre-testing done.
You don't market a case and then find out after the fact that it's no good and then change it (as I hear they did on later runs). Thats poor business practice. Especially with something that goes bang.
I like the PPU cases, they are reasonable price wise but their loaded rounds (IMO) are crap. Like Lapua, they use Vitavouri-Oy powder.
