.264 Win Mag Brass

I'm looking for a good source for brass and have been unable to find one for .264 WM. All I can find is Nosler and Winchester. Feedback on these two aren't very good. Lot's of complaints about Nosler being soft and Winchester being inconsistant.

Any insight on other manufactures? Any sources you find offer better prices?

Thanks for they help.

I use the Nosler brass in 264 and 6.5/284 and I really like it. You could get Norma 7 Mag brass and run through your 264 fl re-sizer.

rws brass in 7mag would be a good way to go just needs to be necked down. norma would also be a good way to go.

Thanks for the comments.

I've thought about resizing from 7mm but I hunt Whitetail in old mexico and the ammo head stamp has to match the barrel marking or you can't take it across the boarder.

I would buy a couple of boxes of Nosler 130 AB and try it. My Rem 700 CDL loves it and then you can check brass out.

I use the 130gr.AB also using Winchester brass and it is 3/4 moa in my Winchester model 70 without the led sled, so I'm sure it could even shoot better than that. That is good enough for me making 400 yd. Shots, but may not be good enough for what you want to do.

Re: .264 Win Mag Brass

I use Winchester brass, while they do have about an 8 grain spread on the weight, I sort and have bags for all at 1 grain. I prefer Winchester brass, thinner and siffer, more volume for heavier loads. MEV
