I overthink things sometimes, I hope I'm not the only one......
Norma makes Nosler's brass for them. It's the same, but on the Nosler brass, Norma stamps it as "nosler" instead of "norma".
Honestly, I have been considering buying some Nosler 8mm RemMag brass, since Midway has it on sale for about $20 a box cheaper than 7mm STW brass is.
BUT, I still have 3 bags (75) of Nosler brass I haven't even touched yet, sitting in my ammo can. I want to wear out all the Federal brass I have, first.
I almost had, until another member on here, from Alabama, had some, and I bought about 100 once-fired brass from him. I got a smokin deal, too, since half were nickle-plated Federal. And since I neck-size only, nickle-plated brass isn't a big deal for me. You just gotta keep a watch in the classifieds section and you can come across a good deal, if you sit back and don't rush. Example, I got those 100 STW brass, 50 .300 Wby brass, and he threw in a bunch of .308 brass and I paid him $100 bill for all of it. Only catch was I had to meet him up in Birmingham, but I had planned before that, to go to Mark's Outdoors that same day, anyway. So everything worked out.
