Junk Brass???

I had a "benchrester" tell me that rem brass is junk, and that he would muzzle load before he would use their brass. Question is what other options are there win or rem????

Warren

There is nothing wrong with the remingtion brass compaired to other factory brass!!!

In fact I have found it to be better than most.

I weight sort all of my brass and find it to be very consistant for the price.

This is the order of brass quality in my opinion. (price not with standing).

These prices are based on 30/06 brass !!

DWM=price ?
Lapua=$100.oo per 100
Norma=$73.oo per 100
Weatherby (Also made buy Norma)=$250.oo per 100
Remingtion=$35.oo per 100
Hornady= price ?
Winchester=$37.oo per 100
Federal=Price ?
Nosler (Also made by federal)=$75.00 per 100

I feel that Remingtion brass is the best buy, but there is better brass for a price.

This is just my opinion for what it's worth.

Re: Junk Brass???

J.E.,

This thread seems like dja-vue all over again...........

In every case I'd pick Winchester over Remmy just due to the increased powder capacity. If I put my Win loads in Rem brass they are sticky to extract. In the 270 Win 20 reloads isn't uncommon.

Also I'd give about anything for decent (non Rem) brass for my Allen Mag.

DWM......?????

Re: Junk Brass???

If you can get more pressure with less powder in lower capacity (volume) brass, doesn't that make it the better bargain?

Not if the brass is softer, thus less shots each before they got to the brass bucket. I change when I seat primers with my thumb and they remain seated as they will fall out after that shot.

That was before LRH.

Taking things to the extreme if I get 5 shots per case I'm satisfied. Considering that now all shots are at game, it takes years to go through 50 cases.
