Re: nosler brass vs. other brands
I have had some experience using Nosler brass. It has both advantages and disadvantages. First it comes from the box in great shape. It is very uniform and it ready to load. I was very impressed with it the first time I used it in my 22-250 and my 280 Rem.. However, the down side is that I found that it is not nearly as tough as Lapua, so you will not get 10-15 reload from it. After two or three loads in my 280 Rem the primer pockets were starting to stretch. I have found that RP bass is a better choice for my 280 Rem.. It takes a little longer to prepare but RP bass lasts longer and works great for me, in the 280 Rem.
For my Winchester short mags I love Norma bass, I use Lapua in 308 and 243 and think it is outstanding.
