few weeks back i bought some bulk cases from cabelas and when i got them, the brass was worse than a beat up bag of assholes. most had minor dings, some needed sized to take out dents in the neck, few needed fire formed, and a couple were just plain unacceptable. i sent 3-4 of the unacceptables back to remington with a note saying i normally buy remington because of their quality, but was disappointed in the quality of brass i receivied, especially the ones enclosed i wasnt even willing to throw in the die so i could fire form the round. just got a package from them today with a letter that said it was due to shipping, that they knew the problem existed, and were working on getting it taken care of. they apologized for the inconvenience, thanked me for the support of remington prooducts, and put 20 pieces of good brass in with it. cant argue much with that.
