    Has anyone had any experience with Affordable Brass & Bullets.com. Just wondered if they were on the up an up.

    I had a short discussion with them about their pricing being slightly ridiculous and was told that they are much more reasonable than other vendors. For instance, it is more reasonable to charge $90 for Starline 45 Colt brass when you can buy it direct from Starline for $85.55 than someone on Gunbroker charging $105. Perhaps that is only one example, well, go look and compare. If you are buying new brass, buy direct from Starline, it is cheaper AND Starline's prices do include shipping. If he is buying at dealer pricing from Starline, well... you do the math and tell me what you think.

    Their once-fired brass prices are a little better but I think there are better options from people who have stock in hand right now. Go give Pete Taran a shot at http://leadandbrass.com for once-fired brass. $30 for 1k of 9mm versus $45 at affordable. Pete is friendly, shipped to me quickly, and is a nice guy. I'd use him again without hesitation and his prices are still reasonable compared to what some people are charging. It is brass, not gold :)
