I'm not sure about those huge cases but in the smaller ones that I've used both in the Lapua seems to be a little "tougher" lasting a little longer with hot loads.
Both are great as far as consistancy goes

I have been shooting a 338 Lapua (IMP)in 1000 yard and 1 Mile BR matches. I have 50 cases that have 17 firings on them and use Lapua cases and would recamend them over the Norma.

Re: Norma or Lapua Brass ?

I am also interested in Crow's load and rifle specs with reloading techniques?

After my fifth firing I can see the stretch marks along the sides of my brass... I have a regular .338LM with a 26" barrel.
