From a trade I'm doing. I'm wondering what's good for shoot and reuse brass and/or what's just for bullets and related to that what is corrosive/non corrosive. I was told the Peter's is apparently boxer primed.

The Israeli stuff I assume is Corrosive and Berdan, so bullets at most.

Canadian ammo. It is non-corrosive, boxer primed and reloadable, but the primer is crimped in.

There are two stories about the ammo. The one I heard as a kid at Interarms is that it was made much later than the dates on the headstamps for use by the CIA. Interarms was a CIA proprietary originally.

The other story about it was that it is just Canadian Besa machinegun ammo used in WWII tanks.

and very good brass too. I shot lots of this ammo in the late 60's and am still reloading some of the brass today. Wish I had bought lots more back then. Shot up something like 2 K of it and all my rifles love it. Bit smoky but other than that great stuff.

Excellent I'm getting a 132 rounds for $35 shipped. The fact that all but the Israeli ammo is brass boxer primed non corrosive ammo is pretty great. Especially when you consider for the same price you can often only get half the number and its berdan corrosive ammo! This means easy to clean quality ammo for the first shot and easy to reload for future shots.

How many times were you able to reload the interarms brass?
