funny I spoke with a guy about a month ago that had two shoe boxes full of .243WSM brass, and 25WSM brass. He said that it took him over two years to accumulate about 250 cases in each size! Said a lot of load data is flawed, so be very carefull (?) Said the 25WSM was a better performer all the way around. Said he was getting about 3100fps with a 107 grain Sierra, but the accuracey load was closer to 2800fps! Bad thing was that he sold a perfectly good .243 Winchester to buy it because the barrel was shot out, and it would shoot the 107 Sierra just as fast.
The WSM brass is expensive! Grossly expensive. Has an oddball case head diameter. The guy I spoke with said he bought Lapua .243 brass for about the same price as WSM brass. He also shoots the .300WSM and the .338RCM, and they were great shooters. If you have not bought a rifle, I'd be looking at some of the others, because the the performance / value thing alone
