Nonsense! You can still order Lapua 308 brass through any of our importers or distributors. Kaltron-Pettibone, Graf & Sons, Sinclair, Midway and a host of others.

Lapua is awesome brass, order it online.

OTOH, i have over 200 Hornady and SSA brass respectively, and both have worked well in my limited reloading, including multiple loadings of some of the Hornady

Austrailia still uses 7.62 nato for military and tactical purposes I believe, if so you should be able to find once fired military brass, here in the states I use LC stamped cases or simply lake city, you should be able to find IMI or PPU stamped cases and for the price its excellent brass, I can destroy the primers in lake city brass and the pockets still hold strong and the weight is also consistent. Don't get me wrong, Lapua is still the top dog, but this way is cheaper and its second best IMO.

Re: best brass 308

I'll probably get chastized for this but I'm not at all sure Lapua brass in 308 is top dog when you weigh price per case versus brass like lake City (Federal) or Starline.

I realize that in Oz, those may not be available but here they are and I don't see the military using Lapua in 5.56 NATO or 308.
