Thanks TAC,
Now how about capacities on the rem, win, and nosler custom?

[/ QUOTE ]

Any ideas on relative case capacities from the different brands? In Quickload, it lists 5 different cases for the 300 WinMag. The designations and their H2O capacities in grains follow

(N) 95.5 (Norma ?)
(W) 93.8 (Winchester ?)
(F) 92.0 (Federal ?)
(@) 91.5 ( ???? )
(R) 88.0 (Remington ?)

Anyone have any actual measurements?

Don

    Ya Ya Ya, what they said. For my two cents; DON'T EVER BUY FRONTIER BRASS!!! IT SUCKS BIG TIME!! I use Remington and Nosler. Both work just fine.

    Hey NYLES , I used to live in Kiln , MS and now live in Slidell , LA and have for the last 6 yrs. I go by JD instead of James D. Jones because the later is a little common and I was oncstantly getting asked are you the same James Jones that whatever.

    I tried the Nosler brass and wasen't to happy with it for the price I was paying and it lasted a good deal less than the Lapua maybe 5 firings and the Lapua I have has gone 8-9 rounds and seeing the the Lapua is only about $10 more per hundred .

    Where abouts is Free Run , MS , I may have been through their hunting?

    In the hills just north of Yazoo. So close I have a Yazoo zip. Free run is just an old name for the area. Saw it on an old topo map one time.

    Maybe I'm showing my ignorance here, but; how about Federal brass (F-C)? I seem to have a ton of it and I haven't heard anything about it one way or the other.

    I measure water capacity from a once fire case -Lapua- from my chamber - filled to the very top of 94.6 grs. of water.It would be interesting to hear other results!I really like the Lapua .300 Win. brass and agree with Mr.Jones.

    Jimmy, your fireformed brass is not going to be a true indicator of capacity when comparing it to other people's since your chamber will not be the exact same size as theirs.
