    Hmmmm.. 50 cents per round, think its better than the Hornaday Bulk at 46 Cents from MidSouth?

    Quality notwithstanding, the Hornady brass isn't $.46ea unless you will call it from MidSouth.

    I cannot speak for quality... Yet.

    But, it's Purdy.
    If it is anything like .223, 30-30, or pistol cases; it will be thick and good quality with a slightly lower volume (not a biggie for me) than other brands but, lasts longer as well.

    Heading back up there and empty my wallet again soon.

    Starline shows free shipping for 6.5 Grendel brass, price would be pretty close to Hornady brass from Midsouth plus shipping.

    I really hope the Starline is good brass, I really like their pistol brass.

    WTF? Why is it the same price as 6mm CM and 25% more than 6.8 SPC?

    I think they always start high and let the market set the price later. Seems like the7.62x39 started out close to fifty cents.

    I hope they lower the price.
    They need to realize that 6.5G is not like other carts; there is limited competition (no Rem or Win, for example) and if they make good brass that is cheaper than Hornady they will own the market, 100%.

    It's nice thick presumably long lasting brass, but if the 500 pieces of 6.5 CM brass I bought are an indication, it is nowhere close to the consistency of Lapua brass. I weight sorted my S'more brass and ended up with about 80% at +/- 1%, but the 300 pieces of Lapua Grrrrrrrr brass I have are all better than that.

    Posted in the Deals thread, but Bud's has ELD-M for <$0.80/round all-in. That's a decent brass source while supplies last.
