    Personally I'm a big fan of Norma Brass. But to each there own. Hornady, Nosler, and Lapua all make outstanding brass. Also Winchester brass is alright, it is very hard brass and thus seems to have a long case life, however it is not produced to as tight of tolerances as others thus there is more prep work involved.

    I am having good luck with Lapua brass. I had a bunch of Federal brass that gave good results but they did not hold up to many loadings.

    I use Lapua because I seem to get more reloads with it, but I've had good accuracy with other brands as well.
