Hirtenberger Brass for reloading?

Anyone with experience reloading BOXER primed Hirtenberger brass? there is a sale sphere in the North of this stuff. I have read on the net of some difficulties in using this brass for reloading, others have reported it is excellent. I am interested in hearing from folks who have actually used this brass. Not interested in hearing about Berdan primed stuff, i put that in my recycle bucket.

thanks!

Boxer primed brass is boxer primed brass, if its stiff/hard too resize once fired brass it was fired in a generous chamber or your not using enough case lube. With brass I know that is stiff or really bloated I use a F/L 30.06 sizer and lube around the case head where the die and casehead touch after that size them again threw my .308 sizing die and I'm golden.

Thanks from big bear
