I think we should seperate the handgun and rifle brass.

While PMP handgun brass do have their issues, like thicker than average walls, uneven rims and extractor grooves, in general I would rate them as quite durable, making them desireable for competitive shooting.

The rifle brass has other issues, just the thicker case walls are the same, which probably contributes to the donuts. Donuts are easily fixed though.
