The RWS is very tough brass and good quality. Loaded to the same pressure the RWS will out last the Norma. But the RWS also has a lower case capacity and max charge weights will be a few grains lower than other brass with larger case volumes with some of the most popular 300 win powders.
There is also some Bertram brass available now for the 300 win. It is strong and great quality. Expect to pay more for the Bertram too but also expect it to last longer. In the end I have found high quality, strong brass to be the less expensive choice when you consider the number of firings you get.
