I was referring to the last 2 batches of Lapua brass. They have been excellent as far as concentricity and SAAMI spec goes. I measured about 50 of the first 100 and said screw it, and started loading them up after those 50 measured out so close. It thoroughly impressed me. Granted, I still check every batch and measure atleast 1/2 of them in there just to get a general idea of how much variance there is inside the lot. So far, nothing has been outside of spec, only slightly shorter. And the OAL's have all been almost 100% to spec. Which is the only reason why I just loaded them up. Not all brass will wind up that way, but the last 2 boxes of Lapua .308 that I've opened have been that way. I guess I just got lucky. LOL
