I have a bucket of about 3k 38spl that are a pain to deprime. However, if you get that stuff processed (I.e. resized, roll sized, deprimed and the primer pocket reamed out) its just as good as anything else.

They are utterly identical to brass cases in every respect- headstamp, red primer pocket sealer, etc- but some are brass, some are plated steel. Only a magnet will tell which is which. I chuck the steel ones in scrap, I have magnets mounted in my big tumbler to catch what I miss.
