    Their is absolutly no comparison in every detail. Primer pockets more uniform in every detail. Weight is very close in tolerances. I wish they made all calibres I would use nothing else.

    As a general rule of thumb, yes. However I'd put nosler a close 2nd and well ahead of win or rem brass anyday though. Having owned Nosler in 22-250 in the past, it was all very consistent in weight, no more than +/- .5 gns and very uniform. Much more so than Win/Rem. Beleive it or not, I once had a bad lot of lapua 22-250 brass that got sent back to the factory. The shoulder junctions were crooked along with the necks. My newest 6br lapua brass is wonderful in every aspect except its not nearly as consistent in wieght +/- 1 grain vs the Nosler stuff I've had. But in a 6br it probably doesnt matter as much. If you're asking wether Lapua is worth the cost, Id readily say yes and if you get a " freak " lot that may be off spec, you can send it back without issue as they will make it right.

    In My opinion ,It is the best. Norma is also very good.

    Nosler is made by Federal so you be the judge.

    I use a lot of Remington, (When I can't afford, or Lapua doesn't make it)And find it very
    good , with minimal losses durring weight sorting and prepping.

    The best brass I ever used was DWM but I can no longer get it.

    I am a big fan of Nosler products But there brass is over priced and is no better ,if as good
    Rem and Win Brass In my opinion.

    Yes, So much so that I choose my calibers for builds where I can use Lapua brass. Especially in the larger chamberings. Worth every penny and out last most all others. Really Lapua brass is a great value.

    Jeff,

    So how are things up your way? Is it dry up in Montana?

    Down here Nevada is burning up, lots of fires and if anymore sagebush burns up we are looking at the Fed's putting the Sage Grouse on the Endangered List..................That will be the end of rural Nevada.

    Lapua brass is great very uniform and durable...but pricey and limited selection. I've also had great luck with winchester nickel plated brass in 30-06 14+ loads and never had an issue they also stay cleaner then unplated brass. fed LC brass has been the least consistant for me.
