Re: .308 brass whats the best?

You're "getting back" into reloading and ask that question? Accuracy can't be bought. Unless your rig, shooting skills, reloading skills and load development skills are very good the brand of you cases you use won't mean much. If anything.

Forget the costly brands and get what ever brass is easy to find, then just do some loading and shooting for a while.

A little hint... Whatever extruded powder you have, if it's older, take the lid off and have a good sniff. If it has a vinegar like smell, it's good. If it has no smell and it's clumpy, toss it.

The exception to that would be Unique (in smokless and Go-Ex in black). Everything else shoud smell... No smell, no good.
