Has anyone had anything to do with this brass before? Is it any good or should I offload it?

All I know is that there match ammo for Centrefire is expensive. Well for us it is. Give it a shot if you can. I like the Lapua brass for .308.

I would say it's probably ok. I say use it if you have it and see how long it lasts. I have a bunch of that for my 9mm I reload. Of course with that, I'm not picky about what brass I use. It was cheap so I got it.

I've had good luck with plain old Winchester brass for my .308. I'm on my 6th reload with it, and it's still holding up nicely! I guess you could say I'm not picky with brass since most of my shooting doesn't require "precision" brass like Lapua or Norma. I don't think I would notice any difference at 100 yards or so.

Weigh it. See what the tolerance is in weight, thus capacity. If it's consistant, give it a shot.

I've reloaded Fiocchi shotgun hulls. They are okay, but they are no Winchester AA. Didn't even know they made brass. I find that somewhat troubling...

I have weighed a few of them and they are all pretty close to each other. A bit heavier then the winchester and federal brass I usually use. Very close in weight to our military brass down here,
ADI. It was once fired stuff that I got. I have polished, resized, trimmed and I have loaded a few and will be testing them out tomorrow.

I have found 25gr of Reloader 15 with 55gr projectiles in winchester brass works pretty good in my rifle. I didn't mess around too much with load development with the fiocchi brass. I used some cheap hunting 55gr soft points, then 24gr, 24.5gr, 25gr of reloader 15 as the brass is heavier than winchester brass. At 100m I found 24gr RE 15 shot the best groups, around 3/4in which is as good as I expect to get with these cheap projectiles, I get around the same groups with these projectiles and winchester brass. So the brass is ok, didn't stretch and no signs of any problems. Think i will keep it and reload the rest of it, after all you can never have too much ammo.
