Lapua-Norma-RWS Brass?

Hi guys....Does anyone which of these manufacturers makes .270 or .280 brass and how would you rate each? Thanks.......Rich
p.s. I would also be interested in any European cartridges of the same head dimensions and at least as long as the .270.

    I just found some specs on the 6.5x68r and the head size is listed at .524" rather than the .470" of the .270/.280??
