Hmmmmm,.........guess who has

I tracked it down. It was in a post you made replying to me regarding DWM brass.

It said:

Early In my Thread I mentioned haveing a High pressure load and had
lost interest in loading this way, the rifle was for 1000yrd high power
matches and seamed to like it the hotter I loaded but all that came
at a price and the brass suffered.

Primer pockets would last for 1 shot ,The second shot would normally
blow the primer in all brands except "DWM" I could get 2 shots from
DWM brass. Funny you should mention dwm because I cant find it any
more, The down side to DWM brass was that you had to anneal the
necks to get good life out of it for normal loads.

The reason I like to prep my own brass is that when I find a load that
realy shoots I write down it's weight after prep and can match new
batches of brass to the old weight/volume so I don't have to start
load testing all over again.

The way I understand it now ,The nosler brass is weight sorted to
be consistent within that batch but not all batches will weigh the
same in the same caliber.Is that right?

Thanks for the comments

Yup, I'm getting senile......crap!
