Also I'd give about anything for decent (non Rem) brass for my Allen Mag.
Your right ,it is one of the questions that keep comming up but like all questions
it should be addressed to help the man out.
My experance has been just the opposite of yours with the winchester brass in a hard
loaded 7 rem mag.
I could get 1 firing out of the winchester and the primer pocket would be loose.
The remingtion would go 2 or 3 times before the pockets would be loose.
DWM was the toughest and would make it to 5 or 6 rounds.
I don't load over max loads any more and the remingtion brass serves me well.
My brother likes the winchester brass like you but I find that when I weight sort
it I end up with 5 or 6 piles of brass ,with the remingtion I will normally have 2 and
4 or 5 that don't fit in any weight group (I use these for dummy rounds for my die
set up with different bullets).
So what ever works best for the reloader and his rifle is best for him.
I really like nosler products but have been very disappointed in there brass. At more
than twice the price it should be a lot better.
Just because a benchrest shooter says it,s good or bad doesent mean it is (good
or bad) it,s just his opinion and we all have one based on our experiences.
