FEDERAL .300RUMMY brass test

D&L SPORTS This was a great pleasure spinning this .300 RUM brass. It renewed my faith in an American manufacturer. If you shoot this cartridge or wildcat off of this case go no further in your quest for brass. I sat down with the 250 cases I received from Dave with the thought that I would be segregating cases by neck thickness into groups to be used in lots. This proved to be not the case, as they all ran within .0003". Case head square shows no movement on my NECO concentricity gauge. I spot checked necks using a Mitutoyo BMB3-1"V modified tubing mic. This brass has proven by my testing to spin as well as my LAUPA 6.5mm X.284 brass. I e-mailed Dave @ D&L to let him know how happy I am with this brass and he informed me he has a pallet of it. I think I will have to lay in more. It's always a good thing to have really great brass to start off a build with! So it a four star rating for FEDERAL with this brass.

Re: FEDERAL .300RUMMY brass test

I wish they had some 7 RUM cases or some unprimed ones! I guess I could take my depriming pin out and neck them down anyway. I would love to have some better brass! The last lot of remy brass I got had bad cases from the factory! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] Does anyone know if I would need to turn those necks if I necked them down?? Thanks for the info 3six!

Re: FEDERAL .300RUMMY brass test

Has anybody checked to see how this compares with the Remington brass as far as pressure/velocity with the same loads? I'm guessing they use Federal 215 primers?

Thanks 3sixbits! It's factory so it shouldn't be necessary right? Thanks again!

[/ QUOTE ] Knowing the dimensions of a rifles chamber is never a bad thing, especially a factory chamber. If you are the handy sort, you might want to do a chamber cast and get some valuable information for loading your ammo. Makes for less of a mystery when trying to fill that empty hole!
