Re: 338 EDGE
Thank you, Shawn.
How is the Federal brass more uniform--wall thicknesses, volume, etc.?
I was talking to Brent Moffit about this about this time last year and he'd done some volume testing of Remington 300RUM brass by weighing the case and then filling same-length trimmed cases precisely and consistently with water and weighing again. What he found over weighing quite a large number of cases was a remarkable consistency in volume. I found the same thing when I talked to him, analyzed his method and then did the same. Necks can be turned and trimmed to adjust for inconsistencies to a degree, but isn't volume from case to case going to be a factor in the overall pressure created and thus velocity? So this seems to me, on the surface at least, to be a fairly major factor. What to you think?
I don't know, there's probably some flaws in this method and I'm not trying to start an argument or anything--I would love to buy the Federal brass (where do you get it anyway?--I lost the link to that one shop that had it)but I've seen a number of posts that seem to go either way on which is better. Doesn't seem to be any clear winner. So I'm just wondering what you mean when you say Federal brass is more consistent.
