+2 on Norma brass, on my 6th loading and still looks great. H-1000 is my guns powder of choice.

"Which brass works for you?"

Well, so far that would be Win, Rem and Fed. But, to be fair to the others, that's all I've shot.

it sounds like you're fairly inexperienced with reloading, just get Winchester brass, 180 Accubonds, and 4831 powder. proven performers in the 300 Win Mag.

Re: Which brass works for you?

I have used both Lapua and Winchester out of my 300WM,and I did not see any difference in accuracy with the Lapua's.I will say the Lapua's are a higher quality brass,and require less prep work than the Winchesters.I also noticed the Lapua necks are straighter and seem to give a little better runout,but never seemed to show improvement on paper.If I was to do it over again,I would probably just stick with the Winchester's.

I've had 2 different 300WMs that I couldn't get accubonds to shot less than 1.5" groups (& was was accurised too). Went back to NBTs, rying work up a load for 180 Gr Barnes tipped or regular TSXs too, but having a little trouble do to having a magazine. I hate magazines in rifles

Re: Which brass works for you?

I have used the following load in a 300WM with great success:

Brass: Winchester
Powder: Alliant RL-22
Bullet: Nosler 180 B-Tip
Primer: Fed Gold 215 Match

.025 off the lands at 3200fps gives < 0.5 MOA.

I agree that the Winchester brass does a good job for this caliber with the above load.

I have ordered some Norma brass for this load to see if there is any benefit to the more expensive brass for this rifle and load.
