Re: Nosler Brass

I am shooting 44.5 gr H4350 with 88 gr Berger FB, 44.1 gr with 90 gr Berger BTs and 46.5 gr H4831sc with 87 gr VMAX with the .243 Nosler brass. I am on my third and fourth firings. The primer pockets are as tight as they were when new.

I have only a handful of 300WM brass with three and four firings on it, and they too have tight pockets. I am not pushing the pressure in the 300 WM (74 gr RL22 190 gr Berger VLD).

The volume is less than RP, WW or FC, so you will have to reduce your loads slightly.

Re: Nosler Brass

Tim,

I 2nd sewwha89 he also gave me some helpful info check out the links below.

Here are some links:

Good luck and as always start way low on these, they seem to have more pressure due to the tougher case. I read somewhere that you can shoot them about 30 times without any trimming..Info from Nosler below....

*NOTE* OUR BRASS IS HEAVIER THAN WINCHESTER/REMINGTON BRASS, USE OUR MINIMUM LOADS AND WORK UP

Features:
Weight Sorted
Chamfered Case Mouth
Deburred Flash Hole
Sized
Ready To Load
