Nosler brass

Is nosler brass worth the extra cash? (about twice the cost of win. brass)

    The only Nosler Brass I have worked with was 300 Rum....It is a pretty good step up from the Rem brass...So I would have to say yes

    I'm just fire forming my first 50 Nosler cases from 300 RUM to 270 AM and so far I am pleased.

    With only fire forming loads w/lighter bullets I "get the feel" that they are a bit tougher than REMs. Well see when I get to the pushing the 195s a bit.

    It was tough to spring for them but I'm pretty comfortable with the purchase.

    Harv
    I would like to add a question to your post.

    Has anyone weighed the cases (nosler) and how close were
    they.

    also has anyone ordered a batch later and weighed them against
    the first batch.

    I had heard that they weight sorted to make them more consistent
    but if you orderd later that they would all be very close but could
    be different from the first batch.

    Sorry two question,s

    Just wanted to know before I buy some.

    Thanks

    J E,

    I weighed three of them random pick out of the box. Two were identical one was wacko. Got a sudden case of the vapors and quit.

    I'll check the weight after fire forming is complete.

    It's all good!

    I have spent all kinds of money on brass, Remington, WW, Hornady, Nosler, Lupua. I would have to say that the Lupua and the Nosler seem to be the most consistent BRASS, not always the most accurate however! I have a ruger that will shoot Winchester brass all day long. Switch to Lupua and the groups open up. I have a Rem700 in 300 win mag, broughton 5C barrel that will shoot Lupua brass all day long, Nosler brass most all day, Remington brass real good and just plain takes a puke if I try winchester or Frontier brass. I also find that some rounds like the old standards: 06's, 270, 08's ect... don't seem as picky about brass. Custom barrels, at least mine always like the highend brass better and some of the factory barrels, well they are just freaks and shoot anything loaded any ol way. I think it's more a matter of sorting and preping, good loading skills and very good shooting skills. I don't know, just wanted to add my two cents I guess.
