Hey guys I'm new to the forum, just wanted give you guys a greeting and ask for your opinion on:

I want to start reloading .223 ammo but I would want to make this process as time and cost efficient as possible. Lee reloading equiptment looks like a good buy and for bullets I've heard nothing but good about Sierra 69 grain BTHP. For brass though, I think just buying primed brass would make things quick and painless.

would getting primed brass degrade the accuracy?
where else besides ammunitionstore.com can I find it?

,thx guys

I don't currently reload. I did read that if you order primed brass there is no hazardous material handling charge as there is if you order primers by themselves. Don't make sense to me but I read this on the Maryland AR-15 site so I believe it to be true. Shabo

It's good for the first time, but your just gonna have to prime it every other time you use it. Unless you chuck it after firing which kinda defeats the whole purpose.

[url]www.rvow.com[/url] best deal on brass going, I have used their primed and unprimed with great results in all loads. If you want to size them after you shoot them I suggest getting them unprimed as they crimp the primers. If find the brass is not too soft or too hard, but just right. The prices cannot be beat. Good Luck, usma89
