Don't understand the 221, SAUM Lapua brass I would think would be in high demand!

Re: Lapua 50 BMG Brass in early April '14

Has anyone necked down Shawn Carlocks new EDGE brass to 300 yet? It is suposed to be wonderfull stuff. I have 100 in hiding. Just need to use up the fifty pieces of 300 RUM brass....but the damm primer pockets just won't loosen up. I must not have a hot enough load.

There's relatively cheap and straightforward solution to that problem. More pressure, power, and speed too...

I'll tell you this, I run Lupua brass through both my 6.5X284 and 338 LM. I can't imagine anybody producing brass of finer quality than Lupua.

I am running 91 GR H1000 behind 300 gr bergers at 2845 in a 30" Brux tube.

My Rem Brass has held up to 5 firings. I have a few that are loose, but that happend during load development when I went looking for the "end". Found it at 94.0 gr H1000.

It shoots wonderfull now that I went up a bushing size in my die. It had always grouped well at 300 yards, but i had some vertical at distance. The bigger bushing solved that problem!!

I had planned to try RL33 once I switch to the Burtam 338 edge brass, but as good as it shoots with the H1000, I may pass on that idea.

I'm getting 50 FPS less with that exact load with my stock Savage 110 BA with decent groups
