Re: Brass Count

I don't have enough 06 Spring or 338 Win.Mag. by a long shot (pun intended), so need more of both. I will not give numbers as their might be a troll from dc taking notes.

Heck, I've got 700 rounds loaded for my 270's too.. And that doesn't seem to be enough.

Re: Brass Count

For each barrel I buy enough brass to outlast it, after culling for the best of it. Seems to come in around ~500pcs per, usually in Lapua.

That leaves me enough to load ~100rds at any given time. And since I've yet to destroy good brass, I'm doing fine with initial expense here.

Re: Brass Count

Between 200 to 500 per caliber, but in some calibers I have two different weapons, bolt and semi, so for the semi's I tend to stock milsurp, which seems to last longer and shoot just as well. A Howa 1500 bolt gun in -06 actually shoots better with milsurp than even lapua brass, and I've tried nodes up to way too high and about eleventy-six bullet/powder/primer/seating depth combinations. Who'd a thunk it?

Re: Brass Count

I like to keep at least 1k per rifle.

As for pistol, the sky's the limit!
