My question is, will it be like starting over with a new load or will it stay relatively the same? Should I go to a high quality brand like Norma or Lapua or stick to a remington or hornaday type brass. incidentaly I am looking for 338 win mag brass to form 30-338 win casings. Thanks
There are many benefits to Good brass like Lapua. I would almost bet 100 pcs would last you a very long time. Many years I would think. That is what I would do if I liked the rifle, intended on using it a while and was interested in possibly even more accuracy.
But no matter what brass you are changing to, you will want to back off the charge about 4 or 5 gr and work back up. The difference in case volume between different mfg's will change pressure.
I doubt load work up will take a ton of work though. Just getting the charge right I would think.
