I've been looking through the EE and have found some that seem like a good deal to me. I'm curious though. When it comes to magazines what should I look for and what should I stay away from? I hate asking to call out companies that peddle in crap products but I know that there are some that do. (there always is unfortunately)
I have been told to always make sure that they are at least USGI? Is that a good starting point?
Thanks guys!

I hope this doesn't sound "snobbish", but the only magazines I use are National Hartford.  I've never had a problem with these mags including: bent feed lips, sticky follower, out of spec feed lips.  
I've also had pretty good luck with Brownells mags.

then again, I only own 11 (just bought a new one) so I'm sure you'll get some "more qualified" replies.

BTW: Stay Away from mags marked "Creative Products"...they suck!
You might want to check out the mag forum for more information.
