Re: Nosler Custom Brass

OK, did a little experiment today on some of my old remington brass laying around. I grabbed two that were 4+grains in difference weight wise and added water from a syringe. They are virtually the same volumne water wise.
I guess weighing them does not give an accurate measurement of actual volumne. Hmmm......................

    the difference comes from the extra brass around the extractor groove.

    If their volumes are pretty much identical along with their lengths then it is an exercise in futility to weigh and separate our brass..............

    Regular water will not give you good data. You must use demineralized water with a wetting
    agent and as you bring them to the same exact level you must weight them against there
    original empty weight.

    This is probably the most accurate method but it is very time consuming.

    Weighing needs to take place when the brass is new,sized and trimed. after it has been fired,
    sized,trimed and loaded many things will change the weight (Pressure is the main reason
    and bullet weight, type of primer, powder charge ETC).

    If you start with consistant brass weight, it should remain consistant through it's life as long as the same load is used in every piece of brass and in the same chamber.

    The weight may change over time, but the brass will be consistant within the batch.

    Even after all the sorting is done some fliers will happen. When this happens I mark the brass
    and if that case throws another flier, It is discarded (Forever).

    I like Norma.

    If I were loading 300wm or other cartridges that Lapua is not providing, I would bite the bullet and buy RWS brass, then Norma.

    Huntingtons carries RWS,
