Peterson V Nosler: Which Brass Should I Keep?

I had two back orders of brass for my 7mm Rem Mag come in at the same time. One is getting sold or sent back, I'm not interested in experimenting with both. If it were you in this situation which would you hold on to?

Nosler or Peterson?

    I recently bought some and used some Peterson brass in 6.5 CM. Definitely a good, consistent product.

    I've used both, but haven't reloaded either enough cycles to say one is better than the other.

    I have a bunch of Peterson brass for my 6.5 Gibbs.  As far as I know they are the only ones that make this brass with the correct head stamp.  I have not reloaded any yet but the cases are very nice and I weighted a sampling of them to very consistent results.

    Haven't used either brand, and all I've heard about both has been VERY good.

    Since Nosler is a somewhat better known brand name, I'd probably keep the Peterson and sell the Nosler (for more $$ per case)
    Greed is the only motivator I have for this one.

    I like to experiment and try new things so I'd give the Peterson a try.

    Yes.
    It won't matter to the majority of folks. 
    In the comp world, folks will choose Peterson the majority of the time.
    Does that make it automatically better?  No
    I think that either currently or in the past, Norma made brass for Nosler.
    Most comp shooters would pick Peterson over Norma.
    Have I tested them side by side to make that determination?  No
