Nosler Brass....

Would it be more cost effective to buy the Nosler 300 Rum brass instead of the Remington stuff?
Can I get more than one box (50) that are the same (lot, weight, etc)?
Is this brass good for necking up for the EDGE round?

Re: Nosler Brass....

Rem brass is some of the cheapest brass available - Nosler brass is some of the most expensive. Cost effective?? We'll that's a matter of perspective but in the real world you usually get what you pay for.

As much as I dislike Rem brass I will have to admit that fully preped Rem brass will shoot under .5moa in my custom 7STW. At times it has shot groups in the .2's & .3's.

There - I'll bet that cleared things up. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Nosler Brass....

I used to shot only W-W brass in the '06 family of cases as REMs were softer and had less capacity. Then I discovered large capacity cartridges (based on RUM cases) and the problem went away.

I see no need for more expensive brass.

Re: Nosler Brass....

It all depends on how much time you want to put into your brass. Remington needs lots of attention and most of the work has been done for you with Nosler. So if time is money, Nosler is actually cheaper and it will last longer as well because it is harder brass. I just wish Nosler made 338 ultra brass. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
Find it
Range it
Click it
Pull it
Dump it

If it's not far, it's boring.

And it would be nice if Nosler made 7MM STW Brass also.. Good Brass for this caliber is hard to find. With Winchester no longer in production you'd better grab all you can get..

Re: Nosler Brass....

BlaserR93, are you saying that Winchester stopped making STW brass? Is this True?

I believe Winchester closed the doors...Thought they went out of buisness, if I am wrong please somebody chime in..Midway, Midsouthshooterssupply all have STW brass Out of stock and or Seasonal Run..Hard to come buy unless you purchase off GunBroker or Guns America, and there's not much of a quanity there either...
