Re: 338 Edge - Match Brass - FINALLY!

What was the neck measurement on a loaded round with Nosler brass?

    loaded Nosler w/ berger is 367, Bertrum w/ berger is 363. I turn all my brass 50-75% to clean up the high spots, so no turn brass add .0005-.001.

    Thanks, I have a reamer here I was about to chamber a barrel with when all this news about Bertram Brass surfaced. I was starting to think about buying some BB and regrinding the neck to accommodate the thin brass but no more than I'll shoot an Edge I think I'll buy some Nosler and move on with the build.

    100 Rounds of Bertram Brass are in. I just measured the shoulders with the Hornady .420 Headspace Gauge and found them to have 0.009" of variance from 2.456" to 2.465". Haven't taken any other measurements yet. I haven't yet resized any as my rifle is about a month out from completion still and am waiting to see what chambers snug.

    Is anyone seeing good groups with this brass and NOT dropping down in bushing size?

    Any idea of when you may start selling them in 50 piece lots.

    I have had great success with a .363" bushing. We will be selling in smaller quanities when we get a stock of it built up.

    I'm still thinking about getting some brass and having my reamer reworked to a .368 neck. I'd split a order with you if you want 50pcs.

    PM sent.
