    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
