    I can pick up some once fired Fiocchi brass 9mm and was wondering if this brass is OK. It seems to be thinner than winchester. Any opinions on this brass?

    I throw fiocchi and S&B brass in the garbage when I get it, the primer pockets are a b*tch to deal with and to me they feel as if I slipped a .380 in the shellholder by accident when resizing. Maybe they have changed however it's just one of my personal rules to keep reloading enjoyable rather than raising my blood pressure.

    I run my S&B brass through the primer pocket swager, the first time. No more problems.

    I've got some Fiochhi 380 brass. Works fine. Don't have any in any other caliber, though. But, with my limited experience, it's good brass.
