Has anyone shot the new 280 AI Peterson brass? If you have, what are your thoughts?

I just loaded fifty 7mm-08 Petersen. They're tits. Expensive by 30% more, but it's like buying Lapua brass instead of Hornady.
Didn't bother sizing them, as they came "ready to load."
Neck tension felt the same with each bullet seating (don't have a force gauge on my press).
Not a single misfire.
They'll be on their 2nd firing this weekend doing velocity strings.
Compare that to brand new PPU brass where the rim diameter varied enough that 4 out of 50 wouldn't fit in the shell holder.

I don’t have the AI (yet), just the standard 280. Just for fun, I’ve played around with fireforming 270 and 3006 into 280 with great results mainly using the cream of wheat method. You do end up with a slightly shorter neck, but in my hunting rifle, I’ve never noticed a loss in accuracy vs the 280 brass.

They are also making straight 280 brass and 30-06, in addition to the 280a.i.
