.300 win mag brass?

I have a .300 win mag and am working up loads and to start shooting 600+ yards hopefully out to a 1000 yards if i can find the place to shoot that far. One of my quetions is i had bought 300 pieces of remington brass and did prep work ie: primer pockets flash holes neck turned etc. and can only come out with 50 pieces of brass that are all within 1 grain of each other. This might by okay but i would like to get the consitency a little better. I have chronographed my loads and velocities show inconsistence due to brass.I hand weigh all my loads so i know that is consistant.Does any body recommend any other brand of brass? My other question is does anybody know who makes a die that will size just above the belt. I have found Innovative Technology makes one and am wondering if anybody has used one or any recommendations? I am kinda of in need of a die that will take care of this problem beins i have shot this new brass 3 times and am noticing some will not chamber anymore unloaded. Am i missing something or any simple solutions. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Re: .300 win mag brass?

Howdy Matt,
I shoot a 300 Win. Mag alot, and I have been using Winchester brass and a old Pacific full length sizing die. I do not weight cases, I just deburr the flash hole, trim every time, and polish the inside neck with steel wool. I size only down to the shoulder, but do not touch the shoulder as to headspace on the shoulder. I am able to maintain 1.5" and some times better at 300 yards. Am able to keep 5 shots at 1000 around 10", but only did 14.5, 10 shots at a 1000 benchrest match.I can get 15 reloads per batch of brass, no chambering problems. The necks start spliting about then, so I toss that batch and start on another. I suppose if I weighted, sorted, etc., like you are doing, I would see better results. But I guess I am lazy, and not very competitive. My friend is heavy into 1000 yd benchrest and uses a 300 Win. Mag..His choice is Federal brass and he is getting pretty good results with no problem. Hold on to your hat, as I am sure more information is on the way from people who are more experienced with this subject, and good luck with your shooting project!

Re: .300 win mag brass?

Hey thanks meathead. I am sure i will get responses at least i hope so. I am finding alot of info on this forum.I stumbled upon it searching the net one late night.Whoever started this is a very smart person. With the load i have settled on i am shooting 220 MK with RL-22 72 grains.I know the books say it is over max but i don't see any pressure signs ie: primer is still round and the bolt isn't sticky and the weather is getting cooler [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Through the chrony i am pushing these 220's 2930fps and shot .620 5 shot group at 100 yards. I have just a factory .300 win mag sedero with 26" barrel and factory trigger. A jewell trigger is on order and hopefully here soon.I have been able to push the 220's 3050fps but haven't had the the good groupings like the 72grains have. Thanks to all for info and look forward to learning more about long range.
