Ok I swore that I would never use factory re-loads (once fired brass) but the economic times is making it hard for me to make it to the range to practice. I already have 1,000 rounds of Federal Soft Tips when or if the crap hits the fan but obviously I won't use this at the range due to it's expensive cost. On surplusammo.com there is a decent price for once fired brass made by a company called bitteroot valley ammunition (BVAC). I've never heard of them but the price is alright. I've heard horror stories about reloads and once fired brass before so I thought I'd throw it out there. Anyone have any experience with this manufacture? If so what were your experiences? Also, what is the general consensus on this type of ammo for you gun?
