Re: Favorite Brass

I've always used Norma and Win. However, today I bought some Nosler brass. Yesterday I ordered some Lapua. I have a feeling my .243 is going to be happy.

Re: Favorite Brass

From my experience....
1=Lapua
2=Norma
3=Nosler

The rest can be just fine. But, you may have to sift through a lot more cases to get uniform lots.

Also, I like Nosler because it's basically "ready to load". However, I got a couple of boxes with a lot of runout. I complained and Nosler replaced them without blinking.

Re: Favorite Brass

1. Lapua
2. Winchester

I have acquired some "rarer than hen's teeth" RWS brass for my .308win F-T/R rifle, and also have some for my 300 ackley IMP coming. Will have too see how that stacks up against the Lapua.

Midway had a sale of loaded RWS 308 ammo that was cheaper than raw brass. I had a friend who got 80 rounds and fired it in his barrel so I am now 80 round to the good on RWS brass.

Re: Favorite Brass

BB,
Yes that's where I got my .308 win brass. Also a buddy of mine in Germany bought just under 3 tonnes of once fired rws, norma, and another euro headstamp brass. Mixed in basically all calumets. He paid just over raw material prices for it! Got it from a gun manufacturer that used the ammo to zero and test fire rifles before being shipped.
He is going to give me brass when I go visit home in the summer.

Re: Favorite Brass

RWS hands down- Never lost a case!

Nosler seems fine for domestic stuff. SHooting 300 RUM and Edge with the Nosler but I am not pushing it like I can with RWS.
