All to true. I needed them so I bit the bullet and paid the 69.99 a flat. Should have brought some from home. Good news was the wife's 20's were 54.99 and $5 total shipping shipping. So nothing to complain about.

#8's were $69.99 at Cabelas saturday. Went ahead and bought two cases. I usually buy Federal from rogerssportinggoods.com but the Herter's is still $10 cheaper/case than I've ever gotten the Federal (which is now $85/case.)
How has the Herters performed for you that have shot it?
I like them. However, on the first reload attempt I get a surprising number with splits at the crimp line that don't reach the lip. So I'm not super sold on their longevity for reloading. But they're a cheap and reliable source, so thumbs up on that.
I bought a few cases last year. So far I have had no crimp splitting/cracking issues after reloading. Bear in mind that most have been loaded at most three times and my loads are relatively mild by some standards: 1200-1250 fps. As a result I tend to get decent hull life out of most hulls.
