Norma Brass in '06 family of cases

Any experience with Norma brass in '06 family case size as compared to Remington and Winchester.

Heaver/Lighter?
Harder/Softer?
Thicker Neck/Thinner Neck?
Pressure tolerance?
Load differences?

Tnx

Re: Norma Brass in '06 family of cases

I am a great fan of Norma brass for my 300WSM and my 270 WSM. This led me to purchase some Norma brass for my 280 Rem. I was disappointed with it. The volume was greater than my RP brass and it was softer and the primer pockets did not hold up as well as the RP brass did. I don't know if the 30-06 brass would be like the 280 or like the WSM brass but I would not buy any more 280.

Shortmagman,

Thanks for the info.

My use would be in a 270 Win. Been using W-W brass for decades. Just wondering if Norma would be any improvement at all......
