I buy alot of Tula in .223 it costs me roughly $200 for 1000 rds picked up 25 miles from my house . Cheapest I can get brass for around here is $329 for 1000 rds plus freight or $359 picked up locally . I dont reload so I really have no use for brass , I do have some bolt rifles that wont shoot steel so yes I do own some brass and I do keep it ,but not near as much as steel cased ammo .
10,000 rds of steel for $2000 or 6000 rds of brass for $2000 . its doesnt seem like much difference until you get in the big numbers .
if your gun runs it run it , I dont notice much difference in brass than Tula in the ARs as far as being cleaner .
