260 rem brass who makes the best????

I have a 260 rem on the way and need to get some more brass. I have 100pcs of new Rem brass but I am reading a lot on the net that it is not so good? I know Nosler and Norma are making brass I know and a lot of guys are necking up the Lapua 243 brass.

I guess it would help to here any experences with the rem 260 brass?

If you have a 260 what are you useing?

Hi Icanhithimman


Go with the 243 win lapua and neck up. I have a 260 rem I built about 4 years ago and it is a great gun I have let my best friend use it and he made his longest kill with it right at 450yds. This gun shoots half inch groups all day long and I have reloaded some of my brass up to ten times I have only had 2 necks split so far.

Re: 260 rem brass who makes the best????

I am using both Remington 260 brass and 243 Lapua necked up. I am happy with both. I am using the gun (a Remington Model 7 with a Hart barrel) as a hunting gun more than a target one so I use the Rem brass when I am loading hunting rounds and when I load for targets I use the Lapua.

If I were in you shoes I would try the Remington and see if you are pleased before spending the extra money for Lapua.

+1 on Lapua brass. Necking them up is a small price to pay IMHO for what you gain in return.
