I like CCI.

Right now I'm using wolf and will until I run out. But I like CCI the best.

CCI are my preferred as a primary with Winchester as an alternative. Not to say others aren't just as good; these are just what I've used with good success over the years.

Second that. CCI produces quality and I have never had any problems with them. Nor have I heard any of my friends having problems.

Hope tis helps.

I have probably used them all but for Magtech & PMC. I just got some S&B to give a go, but except for Wolf small pistol, I have never had issues. For rifles I am more picky but everything matters for precision rifle when you start stretching distances.

I used some magtech that I bought when it was impossible to find anything (just before the election).
Loaded them in 9mm and had no issues.

I was planning on getting a Dillion 650xl but I was told that I should start with a single press until I have that down. I have been watching video after video after video on reloading and I understand the steps and why they're done, but I think understanding something theoretically is one thing but actually doing it is something else entirely. Maybe I should get a RCBS starter kit with a single press first.
