Re: 338am brass

I have gotten mine from TTI armory. Easiest to form in my opinion as it has a very good anneal on the neck and shoulder.

Unfortunately, no it is not cheap but for a case with a 145 to 150 gr powder capacity, its not to darn bad!!

I was unable to find TTI Brass, so I ordered Jamison from Grafs. Kirby said its a bit tougher to form. Kirby sent me a couple example formed 338AM brass, and comparing the TTI to the Jamison, the Jamison has a bit thicker rim (his where fired, mine are new). The TTI is also a bit lighter (366gr/365gr, my 100 Jamison averaged 381gr. The lightest Jamison was 365 (way out of the norm). As far as I know, the brass Kirby sent were also 'out of the norm', just giving you the info that I have. The Jamison brass I purchased, had 4 very light and one very heavy. The other 95 had an extreme spread of 10 grains, with 2 clusters within 3 grains that made up the majority of the Brass.

The Jamison brass seems to be quality stuff. I couldn't find TTI brass, if I could have, I would have bought it instead. I just felt funny not having the brass on the shelf for the rifle I had on order.

Here is a link to the Brass I purchased.

Re: 338am brass

The Jamison hulls are good as well. I have used them. Will take more pressure then the TTI but are a bit trickier to neck down because they are harder in the neck. Also require neck and shoulder annealing a bit more then TTI cases but will take more PSI.

Re: 338am brass

Looks like the Jamison "from Graf's" is 12.00 per 20 higher than TTI. I have used the Jamison brass, it is much harder to work with than TTI brass. More annealing is needed.
