Nosler brass??

I decided a while back after purchasing lapua bras for my 338LM that I liked it so much I wanted to try some nice brass I my other Guns. So I bought some nosler brass for my 300 win. I have not used it yet but it looks great Nice square primer pockets and. Consentric neck walls. What are your experience with bowler brass? I'm hoping it lasts as good as it looks.

Get a JOB! I already feed the bears, I dont need to feed you too!

Re: Nosler brass??

I only have experience with one bag of once fired .223 Nosler brass which I bought from a local shop where I occasionally find really good deals on once fired stuff. To make a long story short I full body sized and trimmed all 140+ pieces and couldn't close the bolt on them with either of my .223's. I gave a piece of it to a friend to try to chamber in his Ruger .223 and he couldn't get the bolt closed either. It now sits in my bucket of scrap brass on the floor of my garage. I'm sure it was a flook or something - maybe it was fired in a machine gun or who knows what, but I won't be in too much of a hurry to try Nosler brass again.

If it was F/L resized it should chamber,maybe adjust your die down a little more.trimming should be done after sizing due to case stretching. Just my thoughts.

Me thinks that if you run your pressures at a reasonable level (low) you'll have no problems.

If not primer pockets will open quite quickly.

Just my experience.

Do they unhook in the front or back.

Sorry Mike, I just couldn't pass that one up.

Re: Nosler brass??

The Nosler brass while better "prepared" than the rest of the domestic stuff is not in the same league as Lapua imho.
