300 RUM Federal Brass any good?

Is Federal Premium Brass in 300 RUM any good for a 338 edge, seems like Remington is the preferred brass but what about the federal stuff?

Thanks

Federal brass = great quality
Remington brass = mediocre to crap

I bought a bunch of Fed primed unfired new 300 RUM brass when it was available from a vendor several years ago. Great decision.

If you can get some, do it. In fact, PM me where to get more if you don't mind.

If you can find fed stuff I wouldnt tell anyone. I would take out a 2nd mortgage for 2k peices. Lotsa wildcats can be built on 300 brass and Nosler is big $$$$ and too soft for me. RP sucks.

Doesn't Federal make Nosler's brass for them?

Either there is a bunch of hype or you guys are searching enough or this is smoke and mirrors or I've been snookered.....again...

Looks like a whole crate of the stuff is just waiting to be snapped up @ 2 bucks each with a min of 500 pieces.
