Re: Nosler Brass ???

We are talking 204ruger here so that means no Norma or Lapua is available.

I just bought some swedish made 222Rem Mag brass to form 204 ruger. It was the same price as WW so I thought I would give it a try.

    One of my contacts at Nosler told me the brass comes from a couple of different manufacturers depending on caliber. Norma and Lapua apparently both supply some of the brass. ~JT

    I'm preping some Nosler .243 Win. and necking it up to 260 Rem. I must have to say, it feels alot like Remington brass, I neck turn them and just like Remington only 1 side of the neck gets the cut. I have 3 different rifles that use Lapua brass and this Nosler brass is no where near the quality! It, in my opinion, is expensive Remington brass that has been weight sorted, flash hole cleaned up, case neck deburred and chamfered. That is it, and I still square the primer pockets. Using this brass for my friends 260 Rem has convinced my that I will never purchse Nosler brass -ever. Crud, even seating the primers feels like Remington! For the same money Lapua is the only way to go, period..

    I have heard that Nosler wont state what kind of brass they use. I have heard that it is preped winchester or remington.

    IMO, no one will ever really know unless they tell you. Nosler has been kinda secretive on the subject...
