Federal 300 RUM brass

Hello all,

What has come of the Federal 300 RUM brass that caused a stir here a few months ago?

See: http://www.dlsports.com/fed_300_rum_brass.html

Any reports?

Thanks,

Jon Denham

Re: Federal 300 RUM brass

No, that post does not give any information on the quality of the brass as determined by folks that have actually shot it and reloaded it. It is just folks talking about ordering some and splitting it up. Has no one actually used this stuff yet and compared it to Rem brass?

It's good brass, seems to be harder than Rem brass. Fireforms and resizes as expected.

Re: Federal 300 RUM brass

I also will agree that the brass is excellent. It is already primed but not knowing what primer I have reprimed it and I am very happy with it. You would not go wrong buying it in my opinion.I would reorder more.
