!!! 300 WSM Lapua brass !!!

Ha , got your attention diden't I.

I just got finished preping 500pieces of Winchester brass and was thinking the whole time "The 300WSM being such a popular case why doesen't Lapua make them ? I'm sure that they would sell as many if not more than the 30-06 that they offer"
After resizing , triming to length , deburing the flash holes and uniforming the primer pockets , turning the necks so their all uniform I'm ready to start weighing them out. After all this work I'm sure that these damn things have to be worth at least $5 each and with my luck they won't shoot for beans.
I sure wish that Lapua would make some 300WSM brass

Well enough b!tch!ng from me.

I just got a shipment of Norma 300 WSM brass from Sinclair, 100 pieces and a few hundred Sierra 175 SMK's. Now all I need is a set of Wilson dies and I'm ready.

Re: !!! 300 WSM Lapua brass !!!

I know that Norma makes the brass but all the Norma brass I've used seemed soft and diden't handle pressure well at all , I'm gonna be trying to push a 190gr bullet out of a 24" barrel at 3000fps , I'm guessing that this is gonna be on the warm side so I figured that the Norma stuff woulden't last to long.
Luckly I've got my chamber setup to where my FL die is just barely bumping the shoulders back and they are all gonna be FL resized .

I have access to a very accurate digital scale but it only reads in grams out to the 4th decimal place , I'd like to use it to weigh out my cases but I'm not sure what the variance should be , anybody out their have any idea ?

Re: !!! 300 WSM Lapua brass !!!

Relatively new here, but noticed that you're using digiatal gram scale and was asking about variances. Do you mean variances in case weight tolerances (as in whats kept and whats thrown)? Or converting grams to grains?
My profession was scale technician up until Nov 03 when I had a motorcycle wreck, but I worked on them for quiet a while until then. Not sure if I'll be able to return to work in the same capacity as before. I used a Sartorious gram scale that read out to the .0001 (10/1000ths) of a gram but got extremely tired of it and traded it. A fellow tech had a Denver digital scale that allowed conversion to other units (lb, oz, gn, kg, gm, etc.) and I traded him. Now I can weigh all my cases, bullets and powder out to .001 (1/1000ths) of a grain. I get so caught up in weighing powder sometime that I'll actually cut the extruded granules with my pocket knife to get it "exactly" on the mark. Talk about anal retentive! It's a labor of love though. Johnny K.

johnny k ,
Thats what I ment ,I wanted to use the digital scale to sort my brass. I'm not sure what the conversion is for grains to grams , I think its like 15 grains to 1 gram.
If you had to use a gram scale how would you go about it ??
Any help is apperciated.
