ADI Brass

Just started using ADI Brass, and it's giving me more consistent results than my Lapua cases.
I use a lengthy brass prep. Regimen for reloading, to ensure 'consistency'.

Anyone else using this brass with good results, as it is significantly cheaper than Lapua, and I want to hear of any horror stories before switching..

Cheers

It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler

I've used the .223 brass it last as long as most other brands is better than Federal and Remington not as good as Lapua if shooting a semi is more than adequate

I use the adi for 223, can't complain for the price, shooting 1/4" at best and 1/2" on average with most other loads.

I also use ADI in 223, bought some new and also some cheap once fired off TM and it is all very consistent. I also have a pretty involved prep routine (especially for the first treatment of the used stuff off TM).

All brass is annealed.  Some is polished afterwards so you can't see it, some isn't.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

Is everyone else having to trim their 223 ADI cases after the first firing?
I'm finding two thirds to three quarters are overlength. I know all were okay for length before the first firing, as I check all brass with the Lyman EZ gauge before loading.

Just a little update on ADI brass, it has less capacity then commercial 308 and 223remington brass due to being militry brass, ie 7.62 Nato and 5.56Nato. Bit dissapointing.
