Lapua Palma Brass

My F class load is 44.2gr of Varget and a 185 Berger. This load loosens my regular Lapua pockets in 4 reloads. I can't get the rifle to shoot well at lower velocities. Would using Lapua Palma brass help get a few more loads out of brass?

    Which 185 are you using, and what primer?

    It quite possibly could, but i dont know if i would go that route. I would probably go through my load work up again and look for a different node and seating depth because switching to the small rifle primer you will probably end up doing this anyways.
