Default Brass for reloading

I am starting to reload ammo (starting with 223). I am seeing all sorts of prices for different 223 brass. Is there a real differs betting them all?

Yes. Some are thicker, some more uniform, some not so thick or uniform.

I buy the inexpensive Winchester brass and am well satisfied with .3-.5moa in my 30-06.

Some people swear by Lapua brass, very expensive.

I have picked up mainly Lake City brass. Funny most of my range pick up is LC. I have some PMC.

try MidwayUSA.com or MidSouth Shooters Supply for brass. prices will vary according to brand and quantity ordered. most brass will work well for the average reloader.

Beltor, Check out the prices on BrassManBrass.com. I know they are honest and take care of their customers. I work there, his prices are hard to beat. Your most popular headstamps would be Lake City, Winchester, Federal, Remington, and Speer.

I use range pickup, its amazing how many people leave their brass. Military crimped primer brass is the best, so you know for sure that its inly been shot once (if you have to remove the crimps)

I use mainly range pickups. Works fine for me.

I go to the range early on Monday mornings. There is always many calibers of once fired brass on the ground.

+1 on Brassman Brass. This is 2,500 .223 cases I got from him a while back. It was mixed headstamp, and had crimped primer pockets. I only paid $120.00 for it shipped to my door. This is what it looked like after I processed and polished it.

Or go to Walmart and buy Federal loaded ammo for $6.75 per box and shoot it then use the brass.
