lately there have been a few complaints about Lapua brass on here alone. I've never had a problem with it myself, but only use .223 family stuff. Other folks complain about Norma, and have yet to ever see a problem with it as well. The only brass I've learned to really dislike is Blackhills, and even then I may have gotten a couple bad batches. Never had a problem with Winchester or Remington, while others do

    do a search on here. Think it was being soft, but also could be wrong. Like I said I never saw a problem with it

    Did a search and couldn't find much. Maybe an isolated incident(s) Checked Midway reviews for all Lapau offerings and all were rated from 4 to 5 stars with most being 4.7 and above. The 6.5-284 had 7 reviews and all rated 5.

    Have only shot a few break-in rounds with mine, but so far the out-of-the-box quality is excellent.
