Re: 300 RUM brass

I use Neil Jones inline dies for my 300rum and I've only fired about 65 round and did have to FL after 3 firing kind of hoping to get about 8 firings. It's funny but on the 30-378 with wby brass got 10 firing on cases. I think someone would come up with a bushing for those primer pocketrs like they did on the old sako 220 russian brass when those pockets opened up and that kind of ended that problem.

Re: 300 RUM brass

So what is the problem with RUM brass primer pockets? Is it the quality of the brass? The manufacture tolerances? or the amount of pressure because of what you are asking from it?
If Lapua or Norma were giving a try to make RUM brass, would it be any better? (I thought Weatherby brass was made by Norma? Is that why it can stand up to 10 reloads as mentioned earlier on?)
Thanks for the answers.

Re: 300 RUM brass

I just trashed 50 cases today (sucks). When pressure gets above 50,000 psi brass does not live long. If you want to get more life out of your brass don't load them real hot. But then again why would you load the UM anything but hot kinda Defeats the purpose. If i was going to do that i would have just bought a 300 win mag. Know what I mean you take the good with the bad.
