Best Brass: Winny or Remmy?

Which have you guys had better luck with, best quality, fewest throw-aways, etc.? I've loaded both, but need to replace a worn out assortment with a good new lot (please not lapua, nosler, or any other $1 a pop cartridge, I know they're better, but I'm cheap ).

Winchester has fewer culls in my experience

Re: Best Brass: Winny or Remmy?

In the past Winchester always seamed to have fewer culls and lasted longer with the exeption of the junk 204 brass they released a couple years ago.
In most cases the Remingtons will hold more powder but the necks seam to split sooner.
Factory federals have shot good to great every time I have tryed them but the brass goes into the scrap bin and not reloaded.

Thanks for the input guys! Would you say that Winchester brass is a little softer, and more forgiving to alot of trips through the dies?

no, if you anneal your brass both should last about the same, i reccomend neck sizing to maximize brass life though

Re: Best Brass: Winny or Remmy?

I have always gotten better performance from the WW brass. But some of that could be related to the chamberings I was using it in. Now if I can I use Lapua first, RWS second and norma is pretty good as well.
