300 win mag brass

What is the best brass to use in the 300 win mag and why?
Thanks in advance, I appreciate your comments.
Jon

I have had good luck with RWS and nosler ! RWS is a little on the thick side so watch for pressure signs !

Have used Rem and Win both. Lately the Rem brass has been more consistent in weight than the Win. The Rem brass has averaged about 2 gr. + or - / the Win was 5 to 10 gr.

If you're going to load maximum pressure loads, RWS would be the way to go. Tough primer pockets. Strong case heads.

Re: 300 win mag brass

This maybe a dumb question but, how does the less case capacity of the RWS brass effect muzzle velocity (ie: more or less velocity)?
Thanks, Jon

Re: 300 win mag brass

The larger the case capacity, the greater the MV, given equal pressures.

If you load a smaller capacity case to a higher pressure than a smaller capacity case, of course the smaller capacity case could launch the bullet faster. But if both cases are loaded to equal pressures, the larger capacity case has a greater volume of gas to expel the bullet out the muzzle at a higher velocity.
