I've had good luck with PPU.

What is the problem with Hornady?
I've had some really shit brass from hornady in several calibers including 300 win mag. Walls too thin and necks split. At 2.25 a piece, I wouldn't gamble on a Hornady case that holds 100 grains of powder, unless they have dramatically changed their ways.

I bought 500 pieces of Hornady in 300wm (do to them telling NY state to suck a dick), an have had no issues to date? Most are on their 5th - 6th firing so far.

Cannot uniform the flash holes (with a KM uniformer with set depth) in Lapua 338 brass as they are drilled with no burring at all.

On Nosler Brass, I think they make decent brass, but I personally don't think it is worth the scratch they charge for it. Only case I played with was 300 Win Mag. Got a bunch of firings out of it and all but it needed prepping and Nosler advertises that their brass is all sorted and prepped and shit.
