Good brass for 300 win mag?

I was looking for some input on what kind of brass I should get for my 300 win mag. I don't need the top of the line super duper expensive brass, just some good all around brass.

Hillajam, Winchester or Remington brass isn’t bad if you’re willing to spend some time on sorting, de-burring and uniforming… a bag of 50 is going to run you about $22.00. If you want brass that is already weight sorted and cleaned up, try the Nosler Custom. A box run 50 will run you about $48.00. My 300 is used mostly for hunting, so a box of 50 is about right for me and lasts a while. Lapua and Norma will cost more and unless you are competing and need the best, may not be worth the extra money.

I soend the extra money and get Lapua , simply because I don't have to do anything to it and it last twice as long as winchesters. I shoot it in every 300 I've owned factory or custom

JDJ,

All due respect for a hunting gun Nosler is hard to beat! No trimmin nice primer pockets pull it out start workin a load...also I had under .002 strech in a once fired(and them werent no kiddy loads).

Plus it was easier to find bought off self no ordering.

Still tring to figure out where I know JDJONES from! You in LA? And no I dont mean LOS ANGLES!
