Just got my order yesterday and this stuff looks excellent.
FYI- It's a small company trying to keep up with a large demand so be aware that it may take them a little while to ship the ammo. It did take them a while to ship my order but the ammo looks great and its a great deal so it was worth the wait.
If brass (esp. 'once-fired' -- and even 'multiple fired' may only have small cracks in the rim), it's hard to screw up casing size (resizing after firing), primer, and (jacketed) bullet. That leaves powder, the holy grail of reloads.
If clean, then the round is probably indistinguishable from new except for expectedly minor variations in the charge, which may affect shot placement consistency (depending on how much "variation"). If dirty or corrosive, can make it 'not worth the discount'.
That's why the first thing potential buyers want to know is, 'Has anyone shot this? Is it clean?' Then it follows that the reloaders who are spending extra on quality powder are probably going to have the better equipment to measure it accurately.

I'm pretty particular about my ammo. I bought a tub of reloaded stuff once at a gun show, and some casings were in pretty bad shape, to the point where a handful of rounds jammed in a Glock-a jam in a Glock is about as rare as...well, a jam in a Glock. Since then, I haven't even had a hiccup with new ammo.
I don't know enough to offer a scientific opinion, but for me personally, I'm probably not touching reloads again unless it's half the price of new rounds.
In the past, most places didn't even care to reload 9mm because it was so cheap, but now with ammo prices what they are, I guess it's becoming more common.
anybody know if there are any restrictions on shipping to cali? Just moved from oregon and had ammo shipped to my house several times there.
Some cities have requirements that vendors log ammunition sales, but that restriction is placed on the vendor and not you. Many out of state vendors interpret this incorrectly and refuse to ship ammo into places like Los Angeles (city) or Sacramento (city). How can a local city ordinance apply to a vendor in another state?
If you aren't in one of those specific cities then you're fine. I've had a ton of ammo (literally) shipped to me over the years in Los Angeles County. Some vendors (Cabela's) are up to date on the law and will ship anywhere in CA. Those who don't say so on their site.
Edit: And to add, I've been wanting to try their reloads and have heard good things about it. Problem is I already have over 1k rounds sitting in my safe.
