    As I suspected, seems fine to me, although they don't mention chamfering unless I missed it. I see no reason not to buy it if the price is right.

    Looks good to me too. They dont specifically mention chamfering. Which doesnt matter becaus ethey polish the brass after trimming and the casemouths are burnished smooth just like the rest of the case. Worst case scenario is youd have to hit it with a chamfer tool as you pull it out of the package just before you prime it, somethin youd do anyway if you processed the brass yourself.

    I personally like milspec brass for precise handloads. Once fired, and weight sorted after trimming yields some damn accurate brass cases.

    That looks like a good price for brass that is 99% processed for you. I don't buy a lot of brass but I will bookmark that page for future use. Look at the price of 500 pieces of new brass from Midway and then look at 500 pieces of brass from these folks. I don't mind saving 14 cents for each piece and have the hardest part of reloading done for you!!

    Well, they are selling the brass for .22 each. I think for my money I'd buy once fired USGI brass and send it to Danny Henry at Custom Brass Processing. He will do the same work and return YOUR brass to you for 3.5 cents each. You can buy once fired USGI on a certain auction site for 11 cents, plus Danny's processing, and you have 14.5 cents each in the brass. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

    I never buy processed brass. You never know what the brass looked like before the "processing" was done, and you can hide a lot of problems with nice, shiny brass. I prefer to buy brass that I can look at, uncleaned, and see exactly what it looked like when it came off the range.
