Using good quality hulls will make the entire process much easier, and will allow you more reloads. The cheap hulls will fail crimping more often, and will start to crack or break sooner than the well-made hulls.

I'd imagine the newer high strength AAs are pretty good then?

The old hulls were the best. A MEC press will crimp any hull like factory if it is adjusted correctly and you are using the right wads.
