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.
I think Lapua will be hard to find but it is the best.
Norma would be my next choice (And for some reason it is cheeper than other brands).
I use a lot of Remington and when it is weight sorted I only rule out a few cases per 100.
Hornady is supposed to come out with 338 win mag soon, so you might check with them.
Nosler brass is over priced as far as I am concerned (Fed brass).
Don,t give up on finding Win brass if you are used to it and like it.
