Nosler Brass Weight sorting.

I note that Nosler weight sort their Brass. How do you go about combining more than one box of cases? Are they weight sorted by Box or Lot Number or what? I wish to make up 100 25-06 cases but will mixing 2 Boxes make the weight sorting a waste of time?
Many thanks.

Brit.

    Hi Mudrunner

    I have never bothered with weight sorting either but as Nosler Brass comes ready sorted anyway it would seem a shame to mess it up needlessly. I just wondered how they worked it.

    Why don't you just weigh 'em and see? I weigh all my brass, every caliber.

    Re: Nosler Brass Weight sorting.

    Imo weight sorting is a waste of time,it has nothing to do with capacity. It can be fat here and skinny there,still weigh the same,smash it flat,still weigh the same. If your going to go threw the trouble then measure capacity not weight,
    To answer your question its sorted by lot#
    I use the nosler custom brass for my 300wm,great brass imo just dont see the point in weight sorting. Its just one more thing to add to there list to justify the price. Other thing I learned about this brass is some of it is made by Norma and some by Winchester,nosler won't say wich calibers are made by who. Just that some are Norma some win

    Norma brass is preped to make Nosler cases. There are not any other cases. Look at the primer pockets compare to Winchester and tell me what you have learned. Anneal a few. I recently sized, shot, inside reamed and annealed Nosler .257 Roberts cases to make 6mm Remington cases. I also annealed 100 veteran Winchester (6mm Rem headstamp) cases alongside. You lack experience if you cannot recognize Norma cases.

    I recommend Noslers efforts to weight sort. They are trying to help. Note that they are all trimmed to the same length as well. I have always bought my cases at the same time, as much as the barrel will ever sustain so I get the same lot. I am about to purchase a 100 of the Noslers in the recently available .270 WSM which are outrageously priced but so is the rest of the sport.
