I dunno about ELD being in the good category. I've only worked with it in 10mm, but it wasn't very good. It was long, thick and soft. I had to cull it out of my mixed stamp plinking brass because it would just crimp to holy hell and get a ripple.

Little surprise, was just a marketing name for PMC.

So I found a bag of Frontier brass, which as mentioned above is made by Hornady. But is it so old that I should keep it as a collector item instead of reloading it?

I also found a bag of PSD brass, and I can't seem to find information on it anywhere. Anyone?

According to these guys, PSD was made by PMC. I haven't found them wrong, yet.

. . .
I'm on my sixth reload of some nickel-plated Frontier .357 magnum brass. I don't stoke it with full-power loads any more, but this batch appears to have a good long life ahead of it. The "brass" is starting to show through the nickel finish, but it's holding up well otherwise.

Nice find with that site, I'm seeing "Poongsan Metal Manufacturing Company Ltd., Seoul, Republic of Korea (probably at the Dongrae Ammunition Plant)"...sounds sketchy to me...

If it doesn't say "Pootietang Metal Manufacturing," it's a fake.

Any claims on this? I've used FC brass for a long time and have yet to run into a single problem. Most of the time it was because I didn't ream out the primer pocket enough.

Anyone know what brand "PPU" brass is?

Good or Bad?

Prvi Partizan, 31000 Titovo, Uzice, Yugoslavia (see above link)

Most of the yooropean brass I've run into (S&B, Gecco, etc) is OK, with some calibers being better among brands. I've reloaded a few PPU in 9mm and had no problems.

According to:

http://www.cartridgecollectors.org/headstampcodes.htm

Don't think I've ever tried this brass.

A couple of weeks ago, due to the buying frenzy on ammo, I bought 3000 rounds of 45acp & 1000 rounds of 9mm, both by PMC. Being a newbe on Glock Talk I have learned that PMC is a little further down the food chain in quality than I thought. How many reloads would estimate I can get using 7.7gr of HS6 & 200gr plated semi-wadcutter ENC?

You'll lose 'em before you wear 'em out. There's nothing wrong with PMC. Most of the difference between these brand is kinda like the "golden eared audiophile friend" who critiques your new stereo. It's moot in the real world.

I agree that there's nothing wrong with PMC. I love Starline - my favorite. I certainly agree that AMERC is junk and I won't even try loading it. I've had very mixed results with S&B. R-P (Remington) is definitely soft, but it will load.

billy396,

Remington handgun brass seems to be better for strength than their rifle brass. I can load R-P .45 ACP until I lose it, but I only get about 10-12 loadings from their .220 Swift brass. I don't push the Swift to the limit, but they are loaded to (ave over chrono)) 3875 with a 55 gr sp. for prarie dogs. A sod poodle doesn't know the difference between 3800 and 4100 fps. They still go SPLAT !

reloadable brass

i have been using fc for a long time without any problems... i think the key to being safe is not to use any brass more than three times.i know amerc brass is considered junk i have used them many times. after three reloads i dump them

Welcome to GT!

(I reload .45 GAP/ACP cases many more than three times. I have yet to have a safety issue because of that.)
