Hornady Brass ?

A friend of mine is thinking of buying a 300 Weatherby and he noticed that Hornady makes brass for it. Has anyone used this brass and is it any good? How does it compare with Norma?

    Their is no compairing it to Norma , a more even compairison would be to Remington , it hard a thin , I hated it!!

    you can use 7mmSTW necked up and fire formed to make decient brass from Winchester.

    I shoot my 300Ackly so little that I just close my eyes and grunt when I buy the Weatherby ammo to use for close hunting and fireforming

    The Hornandy brass is not as good as Norma,
    but it is cheaper. If I am not mistaken the
    Hornandy brass has frontier stamped on the
    rim and this is made by Winchester.

    I bought some Hornady brass for my 300 Win mag. To replace my old brass. It has Hornady stamped into it. But when I read this I ordered some Norma 300 Win brass. I will shoot the Hornady brass first as soon as my 300 is returned from having a new barrel put on.

    I've got some Hornady 6.5x284 and it's pretty good. Doesn't Norma supply the brass to Wby for their brass?

    So I guess it sounds like a mix some think it is junk others think it is good. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] I guess my friend will have to try it for himself and see what he thinks.
