I really like norma and nosler. saying that, if you buy 100 win brass (the price of 50 nosler or norma), Weight sort it, clean necks, flash holes, etc. I feel you will have about 60-70 pieces of brass that is way more durable than nosler or norma.

Re: 7 Mag Brass ??? Which one

I haven't seen a meaningful difference in durability since I switched from Rem & win to Nosler If anything I've seen the opposite. What I did notice is that I do not have a need to sort Nosler brass,or debur, trim ect. It comes ready to run, just a visual inspection is all that required. My Win and Rem brass is sorted necks turned the whole 9 yards, Nosler didn't require any of that. so for me I look at it this way. I don't care for the tedious task of brass prep, so if another brand does that for me great!

Thank you for the feedback guys. Going to be working up a load for 168 gr. Bergers as well. I have Fed 215 Mag primers. Still researching what powder will give me the best results.
