Re: Norma Brass

Norma brass is great, but IMO Lapua is a bit better. I have some Norma brass that is 50 years old and still going, but only fire a few per year with those. I recently tried Norma in a 6mmBR, and it seems to be as consistent as Lapua. Pushed the same load with Lapua thru the rifle, and could see no difference. The Norma cost was about 5 cts per case more.

Re: Norma Brass

Have been using the same 50 brass now for just over 10 years in my 358 Norma and am only down 5 from splitting the necks. Some have 11 reloads on them now and others may be a few more, lost some of my load data paperwork in a move a few years ago. Was pushing 250 grn Grand Slams at just under 3100 a few years ago but for the most part they have been fed a steady diet of 225 Sierra Game Kings at about 2850. Very accurate and consitant with that setup

Re: Norma Brass

I shoot a 6x284. It likes new Norma brass,but Lupua brass extracts with resistance . I'll be backing off my loads.
