I was just reffering to the comment abou tthe use of PMC brass, Like I said, I have never used the stuff in anything but the 223 and 50 BMG so your are correct that this has no relavance in the topic at had.
I also do not know how this brass would perform as far as fireforming either. It is haevy brass very similiar to mil surplus stuff and some of those hulls do not improve real well.
I also agree that for out of the box brass, Norma and Lapua are the lone leaders by a long shot, no agruement from me there, your right on the money.
Back to the topic though, I do feel I can prep a Win Rem case into match grade configuration that will shoot jsut as well as the eruopean hulls, just take more time.
The comments about the size of the brass is also interesting. I totally agree, I wish the brass makers would get together and make the brass to the proper head diameter.
In my custom rifles
I build usung reamers I design, I will admit rarely will I modify the body dimensions much as I do not want to limit my customers to a certain brand of brass because they vary so much.
When I chamber rifles in rounds like the 22-250 AI, 22-6mm AI, all the '06's and their AI counterparts, the brass always varies alot and you get that very noticable pressure buldge just above the case head.
Doesn't really effect accuracy as long as everything is cut true and square but it is unslightly.
No other case head family has this problem with undersized brass, often by 0.010", why do they not make the brass to a true 0.468"-0.470" diamter?
