Re: Norma brass problem

Thanks, that makes me feel better. I have been reloading for about 4 years now but have never had to squeeze so hard.

Re: Norma brass problem

FWIW---that is pretty normal for both Lapua and Norma. After a firing or 2 you will be glad you bought Norma because the pockets will remin snug longer than the American stuff.

Re: Norma brass problem

I bought 200 norma .308win cases ages ago because i could get Lapua at the time. I was using CCI BR2 primers and didn't have a problem with the pockets being tight however the brass was quite soft and would show high pressure signs pushing 155gr Lapua Scenars at ~2550fps, i don't think i loaded any of them past four loading before accuracy went to crap.

I would never buy Norma again, Lapua is cheaper, better quality, and lasts a lot longer.

Re: Norma brass problem

I have a couple hundred “Norma” cases in .338LM and use “Federal” Match Primers.
No problems or concerns, does require some additional effort, nothing like you are describing.
