Try Norma's 7RM brass.

Win will gt the job done with a little more effort and a lot more culls.

Where did you find the norma 7rm brass. Midway is always out of it and I have some Nosler brass on backorder. It was supposed to show up 5-11-12, now it says feb of next year! Cabelas has nosler in stock but I think I would rather go norma if I can find some.

Glad to see Im not the only one that will never buy Win. brass again. I bought 100 pcs of 300WSM from midway last month and out of 100, 3 had split necks, 2 wouldnt fit in the die, and one had a flattened mouth like it had been crushed with a pair of pliers.

Last fall Cabellas had 204 Ruger winchester brass on sale @ 100$ per 500pcs . I bought 1,000 pcs. Come spring when PD & squirrel season was in full swing I then found out 60-80% of the flashholes had egg shaped holes and 10 out of 100 had split necks at the shoulders. Dissapointed to say the least. After trying to "make" them work I returned 600 for credit. When asked why the counter employee was shown the bad cases, her reply was one of ignorance as she had no idea what a ruptured case could have done.

For my 204 Ruger it's Norma Brass from now on.

Got my Norma Brass today and it is pretty ;) All the necks were nice and round, flash holes clean and uniform and it even looks like the cases are deburred and chamfered. Im a little worried because Im reading about how sort it is and my smith normally used win brass and Im trying to get everything out of the 7 rm I can, hopefully I can still get the 3000-3050 with 180 bergers that he is getting in his win brass. No doubt though its much better produced brass!
