Which brass?

I am building a 22-250 A.I. for long range coyotes. I was just wondering which brass you guys shoot.

    Hi i use Remington i have never had a new Rem case fail on forming. I fired 2 Win factory rounds and both cracked for 3/8" so that was the end of them. I also have formed PMC they are also good but i prefer Remington.

    Cheers Bill

    I bought 800 rds of the win. white box 40 count for a prarie dog shoot.Shot around 400 and i had quite a few w/ cracked necks that i found when handloading them.
    I use the same amount of pressure on each case during necksizing but get inconsistant neck tension for some reason.
    Remington brass is all i can get for my 221 FB ,only lost a few cases and they been loaded 4-5 times and neck tension is more consistant.
    It is suppose to be the other way around win. better than rem. but i haven't seen it.
    I don't weigh/sort or go to great lengths w/brass so take this w/a grain of salt.Mike
