How good is Remington Brass?

Hi,

I need to buy brass for my 264 Win Mag and the only brass available at the moment in South Africa is Remington. Is it any good in terms of weight and life span?

Any comments welcome.

On one hand you have Remington brass....on the other hand you have NO BRASS. Is it the "best"....I doubt it...but you got no choice!!

Well put!! Or I can place an order with an importer of a minimum of 10 000 cases at $1.5 per case. Our government has and import tax of 50%.

Over a threshold amount I think of $100.00 USD. I export stuff to Oz all the time. I'd have to check on that however. Duty thresholds change often.

Buy it but weigh each cartridge for uniformity and discard the odd ones.

Remington brass will do just fine. You will have more work at the loading bench but it's not bad. Like 'flip said, sort your brass, use the most uniform for hunting, ELR etc & use the less consistent for practice, fowling, zero check etc. or just toss it.

I've used Remington brass for years and have had good results with it.
