Anyone use these 2 brands?
From user experience can any one give a pro n con of which is the better, ie. case life, easy to work with?
Look foward to some feedback.

Shot a lot of PU in 22 Hornet. Great brass, also use it to make 17 H. S&B I have not used and it was a lot more expensive when I was buying. Used a lot of PU brass in European Cartridges, was very good there too. My two favourites for 22H are PU (Privi) and WW.

Both are fine. Prep and sort by weight.

Echo. PPU is excellent. It is a bit thicker than Rem and Win. S&B brass you need to watch as the flash holes are often undersized.
