Re: Make of brass..

Also agree on Norma and Lapua. Excellent cases. VERY consistent in weight. Federal GMM is not always consistent in the weight of their brass.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: Make of brass..

Lapua #1, Norma #2 (use to say #1 1/2, then have heard that they have had some current problems with soft brass), Winchester the most afforable, Remington- DEAD LAST!! Had some problems years ago with Remington brass which I am sure they have resolved, but my memory is Long, and unforgiving! Don't use anything Remington, except rifles! HA HA! getting kinda confrontational, ain't I?
