Re: Anyone else extremely dissapointed with Win brass lately?
My experience with Winchester brass has also been extremely horrible. Brand new brass has necks dented/crushed/cracked/etc. Neck thickness variations are all over the map, typically around .003 to .005. Weight variations are just gross, usually +/- 3 to 4 grains.
I also shoot Nosler brass now and will always spend the extra money to save time. Neck thickness variations are .001 or better, weight variation is less than 1 grain for a batch of 50. Just all around consistently uniform brass.
Also a good rule of thumb is whatever the variations in neck thickness, the same variation will be present within the body of the brass. So even with neck turning, you really cannot fix bad brass.
