    Never heard of this brand before. I went to the range on Christmas morning and found about 65 pieces of .38 Special brass in the brass bucket. About 20 or so pieces were headstamped "Dominion".
    Who makes it?
    Is it just as good quality as the common brands like Starline, Rem, WW?

    It's made in Canada, by IVI, or whatever they call themselves now. The company has changed hands several times over the years.

    The brass is good, though some of it has crimped primer pockets. I use it anyway, since I've gotten good life out of it.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks guys. I was just curious because I'd never seen it before. I loaded it up and tossed it in the ammo can with the rest. I surely won't argue with free brass.

    Dominion brass is OLD. I have and still use some of it. It tends to be harder than other (newer) brass, especially if used to form for a different caliber.

    I have no trouble believing that. Along with the apprx 20 pieces of brass, there were about 15 loaded rounds that had primer strikes. Primer strikes looked on the light side. I took those too. They were lead bullets, so I'll pull them, use the brass and send the bullets to the melting pot. 15 isn't a lot, but every little bit helps. I don't turn any of it down.
