    Hey, I was gonna get some new brass to reload, and I was wondering which brand to get. I'm reloading 9mm luger.

    I'm looking at armscor, starline, magtech, speer, remington, Winchester, Laupa.

    Armscor is the cheapest, followed by starline.

    I was just looking for your opinions and experiences.

    I've just looked at graf and sons. they tend to be the cheapest.

    Brass to reload

    I personally prefer Win., Rem., and PMC brass. They seem to last longer.

    The nice thing about pistol brass, is that you can load it until it either splits or gets lost. I've used Starline, Remington, and Winchester, all with good results.

    For semi-auto, I'd pick up some used brass either at a range or online.

    I bought some Starline for my 41 Mag, just to try it.

    If you don't load heavy, pistol brass will last a long time.

    For 9mm general usage, I don't think it matters much. I'd just go for whatever has the best price. If you're talking Match shooting, then I'd pick Federal or Star Line because I've found they have the best consistency case to case.

    Pick up some once fired brass from one of the indoor ranges. Unless you are building target loads and need the consistency of higher quality brass, you wont ever know the difference. My Dillon eats up any brass I run through it.
