Alpha brass

I just received my box of 22 creed SRP brass.  I know just weighing it
doesn't show all, but shows how well their tolerances are per piece.
Box of 100  94% were within .3 gr

55= 161.0
18= 160.9
11=  161.1
10= 160.8
3=  160.7
3=  161.2

I have bought a box of the 6 creed LRP brass and had to clean up the
primer pockets. They have cleaned this problem up, all were squared up.
This is way better than the Lapua's brass

The 100 pieces of .260 brass from them, I used for forming my
.257 wild cat, impressed me. Of all the brass I have worked with,
these particular batch was the softest.

I'll pile on this thread with a little more data since I promised some additional review since moving to Alpha brass.  I did some actual measurements of neck thickness variation over a couple of beers to get used to using my new tube micrometer.  For a variety of reasons I'm reconsidering neck turning, but its very clear that unless you're going to use a nice turning setup, Alpha brass necks are already pretty damn consistent.  Not a single piece of brass I measured had more variance of 1 thou.

Its over 2x better than even the weight sorted hornady I've used previously.
